Surrealist Land Grab

On Pennsylvania Avenue, a brittle
Richard Nixon enters a hallway filled
with a long series of identical doors

leading to an empty room. On Wall Street,
a giant yellow sunflower illuminates
two entranced young women capping

a plastic Immaculate Conception. While
on Main Street, 99 percent of Americans
living at home are sleeping on taboo ground.
