Midwest October, Presidential Election Year

Found poem regarding Trump on tape. Read no further if words offend you.

Midwest October, Presidential Election Year

by Jen May

Scarecrow festival weekend, my home invaded
no getting away from reports that Donald Trump
would “grab them by the pussy”
those “hot as shit” women
on the eves before the second debate.

Brown marmorated stink bugs instinctively burrow
between cracks, invasive around the trim.
There are five nymphal instars before maturity, changing
color from yellowish red in the first and off-white
(off color) with reddish spots in the fifth.

“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start…” “f-ing her.”
These chemicals are produced by dorsal scent glands.
The legs, head, and thorax are black. Hands are everywhere.
On the walls, in the window, and on camera.

Feeding on tree fruits such as apple, results
in a characteristic distortion referred
to as “cat facing,” that renders the fruit unmarketable.

How many sources will come forward?
Crushing Trump will result in putridness
all around. If smashed against exposed skin
recordings been reported to produce
dermatitis at the point of contact.

Better get this checked out.
