EATING THE WORM
-for Señor Trump
Señor Trump shouldn’t drink Mezcal
Because the gusano
is an arduous laborer
with an appetite for politician’s brains
the wall his party
hallucinates around Mexico
When the metamorphosis
of worm into moth is complete
Insect Trump might laugh at his mythological proposition
has already erupted from the ashes
of America’s nightmare
Gusano: The caterpillar found in some bottles of Mezcal.
Aztlán: The legendary homeland of the Aztecs.
