New York/Xanadu


Trump Taj Mahal, Atlantic City —  © Brian Rose (see more Atlantic City photos)

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.


Donald Trump and King Salman of Saudi Arabia

And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

(from Kubla Khan by Samuel Coleridge)
