marshmallow

as wonderful
as the ideal
of a new regime
coming into play
maybe
to some
has anyone
stopped to think
that it is akin
to slapping a band aid
on an injured
bald eagle’s wing
while ignoring
the head
has been lopped
off

at this point
it will take
victor von frankenstein
or
herbert west
to reanimate
the american dream
while we
roasted marshmallows
as it burned
before us

how crazy is it
to see a
superpower
die
while the citizens
dance
in the still twitching
cadaver
pretending everything
is perfectly fine
we can fix this
we can do better
be better
democracy is slow
it only took
one hundred and fifty years
to acknowledge
the possibility
of systemic racism

but we are on it!

pass me a stick
i want a
marshmallow
