A Presidential Moment

He was here, you know?
Among the trees and benches
A day like today.

I didn’t see him, no,
but I saw the suits.
I saw the traffic.
I saw the flashing lights.

I heard the held the
crowd like a cup.
He sipped slowly
and let the stem rise,

and I, with nothing to drink
and thirsty for a whole country,
waited at the door.
