“I stand behind my stance,” the leader said.
“I’m firmly for my own decision now.”
His language made me wonky in the head –
I couldn’t help imagining just how
a person stands behind himself, instead
of justifying what his quotes allow.
We think in words and pictures. Both have heft.
With photo ops and slogans, we’re bereft.

(Ottava Rima)
