Lilly

The single stalk
serves only to flaunt
the improbable

siren song color
no one could invent.
Like someone's underwear
run up a flagpole.
Someone you know.
Because you recognize

the shape and color

that the world is.
And despite
or because
of all that

the owner
of said display
shows no signs

of remorse.

The President at 3 A.M.

Watching television.
Talking to himself.
Or to the TV.
Or both.
Eating popcorn.
Drinking scotch.
Tweeting.

While the staff
 kneels outside
at the keyhole.
