Better the rape of Europa than this

   In subtropical semiotics of
   psychopathic summitry, a hand-
   shake is no mere photo-op. The
   clutch of the upper arm, the
   bold caress of the manicure
   portray a power exchange for
   mortals in their terror to
   marvel at, and minion media
   flacks to frame on-site, by
   manipulation made hilarious,
   at last, by extenuation of
   great distances spanned,
   hazardous seas traversed in
   triumphal passage, to a safe
   harbor of serenest dictator-
   ship. Now must America be 
   dazzled by her abduction.
   What was ever so Olympian?

i   Ralph Gleason
