Gazing Darkly through the Trump Looking Glass

Russet & Coco rendered darkly
behind an abandoned sewer pipe
 at Long Sands Beach
CC Jean Stimmell: 3/17/17
With the election of Trump, 
we  have stepped through 
the looking glass into an 
alternate world of 
mean-spiritness
misogyny
violence
racism


where only
the fittest
and richest 
will survive.

End of the Line: A metaphor for our times?

Still Life 3/5/17
CC Jean Stimmell
Artifacts wash up
with the spring melt:

Skeletons
of civilizations
– and species– 

gone bust

Or, perhaps, an inverted metaphor for our times?
