Today
ii.

Patrons sift through
newspapers. Open
today’s mail. Try to ignore
the sportscast vs.
muffled oldies
competition.

One pair wanders,
drawn toward pop
machine. Then vending.
Father buys peanut butter,
Orange Crush. Son gets
chocolate chip, Mt. Dew and
replica
of father’s chin.

Startled goose
calls out
from son’s
back pocket. The ride’s
here.

Repair-shop window
watches. Blinks.
Thinks this
could
be a postcard.
