even the homeless guy
on the R train hates trump

trash bag tuxedo
he slides up to me
on a hot summer day and says,

you got any money
for a cold drink?

i hand him two bucks
then he looks down at my bag
and reads the pin i have on it

“fuck trump and fuck you for voting for him.”

he laughs and says,
yeah, man, that fucker is crazy
grab ‘em by this
grab ‘em by that
he just don’t make any sense

kind of like being homeless and hungry
thirsty in the richest goddamned country in the world
i think

as he trash bag tuxedos along
sliding up to someone else.
