Delighted to have this poem posted today at International Times. Please visit to read.
Like many, I have written much in 2017 about Donald Trump explicitly as President or implicitly as such but also more widely his impact beyond the USA and on the world.
Therefore, when writing my second found poetry sequence this year, American Finds, as an American and based on the Great American Novel, his existence intruded on a number of the poems. This was generally not a conscious attempt to include him and his effects/impacts: but language and ideas in those great historical American works could not help but reflect Trump and the pervasive negativity he not only projects but creates and embeds.
