The Election A wounded Chihuahua, bug-eyed adorable, scrap-starved and shitty, Limped, Towards me, shaky-legged and sorry Looking for love, warmth, home, I thrust forward the brunt of my foot and punted the mutt under the chin, His twinkly little head snapped back with a sickening crack as I flanked him and rained punches down like torrential hale. His ribs yielded under my knuckles as he coughed blood up my trouser leg, I was not offended by this, in fact I laughed, The little haggard fuck tried to get up and fell to the floor in a pathetic flop, He wheezed and begged between spasmodic waves of rigid jerking, I thought of Donald Trump; I stamped him out of existence. A little butterfly landed with a flutter like nervous eyelids, In my hand, I was very still, you see, I closed my fingers ‘round her, and squeezed, Till I could feel her fizzing and bubbling, her broken symmetry disgraced by my aimless lust, When I opened my hand, Not a splinter of cocoon betrayed her debasement, Guilt purveyed and attempted to snatch me, I thought of Donald Trump, And my sins were no more, So, I laughed to myself, and she heard me alright. When the doctor, Finally asked me if I was truly sorry, His eyes urging remorse to make its way to mine, I thought about Donald Trump to stop myself from laughing.
