Shuffling Off to Brownsville

1 November 2018: Soldiers Deployed to Border to Confront the Saddest Caravan This Side of the Bataan Death March

 

You may know the mid-century cliché,

the crazed artist

spazzily slinging

paint on canvas,

an object of derision.

That’s the Trump Presidency,

sort of,  kind of.

and it’s shit being slung not paint.

from. like two weeks ago,

have already disappeared,

hardened, crumbled into desert dirt.

Splat!!!!
