"He is" - Keith Strickland

 This was created from an editorial in today's paper
by Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen.
Words are blocked out on the page 
in a style called découpé or cut up technique, 
originated by the Dadaists,
to reveal different and unexpected meanings.
He is
human dust devil
the blank expression
chillingly demagogic
the queen
of diamonds
a Molotov cocktail
reality must conform
to what he wants
Like a sleepy child
in a creaking house
he imagines
boogeymen everywhere
an engine of
never strayed
no matter how unreasonable
to babble lies
a glaring demon-
stration of vanity
He denied the undeniable
