Weekly poem on Trump Presidency

 

Noah Falck

Celebrity Dream Poem Donald Trump

A great sea of people collect near my tower.
They wave flags, thrust signs into the sky.

I can’t make out the words from my penthouse,
but I am sure they say great things. They say

God made me, and only me, in his image.
I am God tonight, and every night as my daughter

holds up a mirror to my naked body, my golden hair
a sunrise, a tremendous fire that gives you life.
