Donald Trump's presence
in the White House

turns the rest of reality
on its axis

such that the man
who started two wars
in the Middle East

authorized enhanced interrogation techniques
and put the country
trillions of dollars in debt

(for example)

can say of our current president

“I don’t like the racism
and I don’t like the name-calling
and I don’t like the people feeling alienated.”
