Revealing

As Trump was preparing to make
his disastrous-for-women-et cetera-pick
for the Supreme Court

true American hero
Stormy Daniels
was a mile away
at the Cloakroom strip club

helping to revive an establishment
that literally collapsed on itself in 2014

and left scantily-clad women
fleeing onto K street
in broad daylight

by removing
her pink dress
gloves
bracelets and a
feather boa

to "Big Spender" and "Material Girl"

in a 15-minute show titled
"All Things Revealed"

which absolutely of course
does not reference anything political.

Said Russian expat Irina
"“I want to see [Daniels]
in a leather dominance situation.
Because she’s dominating our president.”

Declaration of Independent Thought

This 4th of July

while you're eating
engaging in festivities
and trying to ignore the news

remember that there is a reason

that these people
are called public officials

and that they can be confronted and resisted
24 hours a day
and 7 days a week.
