Out of Our Depth

Crab found impaled on a bush at Sea Point Beach
CC Jean Stimmell: 3/23/18

As a crab, snatched by a seagull,
is ripped out of its depth,
so too are we,
as Trump’s prey,
being yanked up
 from our depths,
destined  only
 to be dropped,
dashed upon the
sharp edges of
our worst dreams

What will it take for our skeletal moral landscape
to bud and flower like the desert blooms after the rain,

washing away the specter of that knuckle-dragging,
chest-thumping, narcissist called  Trump?
