President Donald J Trump at the Western Wall, Jerusalem 2017

1 May 2018

The kippah sits as strangely
on the artifact hair
as the look of reverence
on the features
lapsed and porcine.

His hands are on
the ancient stones;
his mind on
the photographers,
perhaps.

His Israel is not a country
on the map;
it is the adjunct
to a fantasy,
a figment
of his base.

There were only
two words
on the folded note
the President placed,
beyond the camera’s reach,
in a crevice of the wall.
To the God of the Patriarchs,
the Shield of Abraham,
Trump wrote:
Believe me.
