The President Has Never Said the Word 'Black' by Morgan Parker

The President Has Never Said the Word 'Black'
To the extent that one begins
to wonder if he is broken.
It is not so difficult to open
teeth and brass taxes.
The president is all like
five on the bleep hand side.
The president be like
we lost a young      boy today.
The pursuit of happiness
is guaranteed for all fellow      Americans.
He is nobody special like us.
He says brothers and sisters.
What kind of bodies are moveable
and feasts. What color are visions.
When he opens his mouth

a chameleon is inside, starving.
