Thought to keep in mind during the ‘nuclear’ Spectacle in Singapore

Beware of con men
is very canny advice,
particularly so, now,
in the Age of Trump

Trump’s new nadir of insensitivity on Memorial Day

surely takes chutzpah
to praise oneself on this day
though you schemed to not serve…

Trump about Comey: ‘an untruthful slime ball’

No truer words voiced
than ‘It takes one to know one.”
A Trump boomerang!

Guess who

“Chaos is his name.
Lying, cheating is his game…”
Oh! Donald J. Trump.

Just how can we know
Bolton’s a fearsome jackass?

Thoughts about her death (for Lan)

You left me
here
in the midst of my dismay.

You lay there
your eyes seemingly focused
on a shadow on the ceiling,
your lips poised
as if to speak.

Strangely I recalled then
the first time I saw you.
You appeared out of nowhere
in your white ‘ao dai’.

I thought She’s the one…

Much later we lay one night
side by side and you told me
about the first time you saw me
sitting at the table smiling.
You said you thought He’s the one…

The orchid plant stands
in diffused sunlight
on the kitchen table.
Four once unopened buds
have blossomed now to join
the others in their beauty.

When will this plant go dormant?
When shall I, to go join you,
and leave them all
here
in their dismay?
