Inauguration Day

img_5962

Stifled,
this air I breathe,
hope overshadowed by sadness
for humanity,
the press of cold ink,
signed, sealed, delivered
while he preaches
behind a smug grin
and dangerous promisings
of fear and loathing,
ill-contained,
his black magic showing,
poison in the air
as he teaches intolerance,
another brick in the wall
and divided we fall

Whispered Plea

image

An immediate connection,
spontaneous,
but dangerous
as both give in
to the fervent need,
reason rendered useless
when he hears
her whispered plea,
“Kiss me.”
