Where will the Words go now

Where will the words go
now,
when abnormal is being
normalized,
and journalists get kicked
off
the president’s plane—

when a burning flag
at the feet—
if he had them—
of a young wheel-chaired Iraq war Vet
makes him no longer a citizen.

Will he find himself
alone,
behind bars,
in orange—
an ugly
undisguisable combed-
over orange?
