WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2016
 
Was I dreaming?
 
Circles under my eyes
and two more silver hairs
 
The Tea Party
and the Green Party
Green Tea Party
Those who didn’t vote
Those who didn’t care
 
Inner racism, inner sexism,
inner xenophobia, inner Islamophobia,
inner anti-Semitism, inner homophobia
inner classism
 
Slavery, internment camps,
exclusion acts, stolen land, deportation,
“locker room talk”
 
The media, FBI, Assange,
Putin, birthers, gerrymandering
 
What a way to end my thirties
and begin my forties
