post truth society

the pale blue of december
wraps its icy fingers around my heart

freezing
squeezing
mistreating

the world gone mad
a power hungry freak
rejects
diplomacy and dignity

while whole families worry about what it means to be american

verified
terrified
objectified

the future

vast
and
unforgiving

looms
menacingly
