As America sleeps

As America sleeps
across the nation, husbands snore quietly
while their wives grind their teeth,
my daughter smacks her lips,
Presidential Nominee Donald Trump 
into the darkness from his tall tower
of wealth.
he is alone.
there is no one to stop him.
no one really cares.
we are dreaming of a peaceful America
with no wars, good schools and food for all,
or maybe we are dreaming of flying above
the trees, or of dogs chasing us down a street.
surely, we are not tweeting,
least of all about ourselves.
