Outer Space Politics 
 
Putin is an astronaut
on the dark side of heaven
Trump eats pretzels on a rock
during this glorious
                                   theta—
 
“Imagination is more important than knowledge,” quoth Einstein.
I substitute the word “Intellect” for “knowledge”
to make this sentence ring heavier in my head.
 
The Universe [Multiverse?] keeps popping out of socket.
 
There are no July kisses on
                           this Moonman’s Afro.
 
Trump begins to sweat.
     Says high fructose, being
completely guilty, and these furry aliens
that crawled out of Alex Jones’s head
         keep helping the Russians to build nuclear weapons
on the dark side of the moon, are giving him the heebee geebees.
 
Wookies they are not but because NO ONE loves Wookies more than Trump!
