Trump (as Antichrist)
It's a slick prostitution.
He has them eating off the skin of his teeth.
First one claw, then the other,
then the 3rd, drumming its nails on his luxury Lexus.
the world; raw and salty, him, his own oyster.
He grabs the nation's
bulbous head, as if the world had only one neck.
The right eye brightens, bulges, then no longer dilates.
He buries his talons,
tears a hole, a wound, in the mind of the masses.
A never-ending eclipse;
he swivels his head, says, "The only good one is the last one."
