Senator Clinton

She slips, pricks herself.
Bobby: small wound, no blood. Still,
eyes in the dark. Wolves!

Capitol Hill

 

Apartment hunting:

More fun than root canals or

a bikini wax.

 

Tired kitchens and

grimy baths. Maybe I’ll take

the wax after all.

Strategery

el jefe

Deficits blossom,
a tree of debtors’ flowers
with no future seeds.

Shrub unites us all
Could never ever divide
Division too hard.

I own senate and
house of reprehensibles
how? strategery!

If all you have is
ignorance and confidence,
then success is sure.

If films fail, we know
not to see the sequel. Why
not so with leaders?

Homo economicus

Adam Smith

Adam Smith

I have a headache

and your talk of supply and

demand does not help.

 

Perhaps if you could

supply me with some advil

we could be good friends.

 

I’ll paint your nails as

you read Marx and draw curves. Your

toes look good in red.

 

But after two weeks

you’d stop calling. I’m just not

efficient enough.
