Domino Effect

Domino Effect


For an erection lasting more than four hours
tell him you don’t agree with him.
The most desirable of her pots
authored a vast intelligence.
Don’t make me sick of this,
followed every year
(I assume that’s what everybody does),
to return at 6 o’clock in the morning.

Everything is changed. Even as we speak,
parliaments fall, people emerge and die.
Was this revenge for the last time?
Efforts at not being American
expanded, climbing the fan of the new continent,

hard as the proverbial rock.

Thank you for reading The Nation!

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that moves the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories to readers like you.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.

Thank you for your generosity.
