Uniquer Than Thou

by Mathew Paust

The black tranny biker neon-blue-eyed eloquent acclaimed-poet bank executive

Democratic presidential contender

sneers covertly

at practically everyone else on the planet

until confronting another secretly sneering

black tranny biker eloquent acclaimed-poet bank executive Democratic contender but with

brilliant green eyes

each immediately sweats and has heart palpitations and

conceals a kaleidoscope of murderous thoughts

behind facades of cautious amity

wishing to keep all options open while alert to the possibility

the one iris pigment proves more camera friendly than

the other

Why can't we all just get along

police victim Rodney King injected into the ages

of human aspiration

Is it safe to presume Rodney King's eyes

were brown?
