One Thing Too: Rob Thomas

solace
 
Europe lies on a Swedish bed
with an indecipherable name
a drunken teen thrusts his membership
into her wounded side
 
Donald Trump is on television again,
this time as the apprentice
somewhere snow is filling divots,
on an exclusive golf course, with Christmas
 
the snake withdrawn at Standing Rock
coils like a deadly turd
the mighty dollar is down
but the holiday lights are up
 
tomorrow the kids will build a fort
the kid next door is gonna pay
we’ve dressed our bonhomme like a klansman
to melt in effigy come spring
 
thirteen days shy of solace
/scratch/ solstice
supply of Leonard Cohen is down
but demand for music is up

your invitation:
tell me or show me one thing. it doesn’t have to be profound. it could be visual or written or a combo of both.  it could be about your work; it could be an artefact or a glitch, a link to some film or tv show you’ve watched or a coffee place you like. it could be short or long. i’ll post it along with a link of your choice to your work or somewhere else. disclaimer: i might choose not to post if it doesn’t suit me.
your reward? send me your mailing address & i’ll send you something whimsical…
it’s dark out there this summer  fall/winter [since the election of that motherfucker in the USA etc] ; i think we need an injection of whimsy / duende.
so fire away. svp. amanda at angelhousepress dot com
