“first they came for the _____” ( Mr. Trump, fill in the blanks )

_______________

then they came for the. ______________

( fill in the blanks, Mr. Trump )

be careful,
the extremists appear to be on the ascendancy,

the brutal murderers of daesh and the neonazi drivel of trump,

so be careful: guard your mind,

never forget,
remember,

always,
always remember:

“first they came for the Communists …”*

talkin’ nugget-o-gold blues … …

stolen glances,
hearts aflame,

oblivious, blind,
reaching out,

yearning,
aching for,

not much,
but everything,

everything human,
not much,
but everything human,

eyes meeting eyes,
the furnace of your being,
form,
body,

your breath scorching me,
desire like tinder,

an oasis in this desert,

of my life,

of,

smiles, tears,
pain, fears,

sorrow,
joy, happiness,

strife,

ah, but you see,

where you are,
right now, presently,

is where i saw you last,
in dreamy waves of wishes long past,

yet, still alive,
breathing,

living today, now … …

… … so may i join you,
and all that i know to be true,

cloaked beneath monsoon skies,

to share,
to quench roaring flames,
of need,
want,

biddin’ adieu to yesterdays shames,

singin’ these blues into our shared night,

alone,
together,
passionate,

intense, never dense,
and all that jazz,

though oftentimes,

laying it all bare,
real,

devoid of frills,

of candy confetti-meaningless razzmatazz … …
