Trump Narrates Our Breakup

Cat Friesen 


Found poem using an interview with Trump

If you remember, you were
going down, choking on
control like never before;
it was only going to get worse.

You announced the building of walls,
cutting all the things you’ve done
into thousands of neat negotiations.
You were strangled by regulation.

Sure, you could talk,
try to send a message;
but what is the great success
of last year’s decision?

This never would have happened
if you hadn’t built roadblocks,
manufactured promises,
erased yesterday.
