DAWN BREAKS THE MORNING AFTER DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Poignant, necessary and reflective…

THE FLOOD PLAIN, POEMS BY CHARLIE HOPKINS

9 NOVEMBER, 2016 written by Carol Hopkins

The birds outside my window don’t seem to realize Donald Trump
is their President.
They peck for seed placed by Charlie on concrete walls
that enclose our friend’s porch.
They are oblivious to the walls of this world.
Satisfied, even without health insurance.

Millions of dollars have been spent here on houses with a view of the river.
For the bluejay who having eaten his fill
is lifted by his own wings into a hundred foot fir tree
the view is free.
