1.
Anachronism
after anachronism—
such simulacra.

2.
It squeals like a mouse.
Quacks like a duck. It swims. And
looks truly Goofy.

3.
Where fun is catholic.
And to mention otherwise
makes a heretic.

4.
Balloons, as well as
magic, deflate. Slow. Sometimes.
Suddenly they’ll burst.

5.
Look dad another
line. It’s a party—everyone
is doing lines!

6.
Six days of queues—more
or less—we are crammed down this
gizzard of a goose.

7.
Seven days walking,
seven standing—the Seven
Dwarfs—damn I’m Sleepy.

8.
Screaming babies thick
as crickets unrestricted
by pitch-black hours.

9.
Release more villains—
thin their miserable herd. It
is benevolence.

10.
Dilaudid in the
fanny pack and morphine drip
in the Camelback.

11.
Commiserating
each other’s miseries is
fun for families.

12.
Memory will lapse—
and relapse—into pleasure—
given enough time.
