Deep Throat by Kym Cunningham

I can trick you into swallowing
privilege.

Ours is too big to shove
in your mouths.

“Chubby bunny,”
the President laughs as

whiteness falls
from his tongue.

Clinton said that being president
is like an orgy:

you’ve got a lot of people under you
and nobody’s listening.

We wait
to be seduced.
