Saturday’s Little Woes

Suddenly everyone is double masked.
Me too.
Dragon Fruit is $6.88 a piece — Robbery.
Bought a book from
with the library label still attached.

Why are these people at the car wash?
Don’t they know another snow storm is coming tomorrow?
Why is this white haired eighty-year-old out and driving today?
The road is jammed; half the right lane is ice;
the parking lot is overflowing; dirty snow mountains at every corner.
Who would buy a piece of fruit for $6.88?
Dragon is the fruit of deceit–all looks and no substance.
A majestic pink coat with green frills,
pinker flesh inside dotted by cute black spots.
The taste is… no taste.
