Bouncy castle, sausage sizzle, face painting
scratch band music
a day out –
high country power station, $2 per person
or $5 family admission –
child cancer the benefactor.
See water spun to electricity
attend the village domain fair.
Margarine yellow sun
Monet blue sky
TV advertiser family picnic.
Walking the perimeter I saw her
scandinavian blonde just beginning to platinum
late model SUV,
designer hamper, rug and accoutrements
corporate looking husband –
law, public relations, consultancy ….
two gorgeous children …. now…. 47 at a guess
21+26, yes, 47.
a room, marijuana cloud hung
brooding music, hopeful men
marijuana – so tame to her wildness –
pills and potions and promiscuity,
she was greedy for all, and then some.
and a smile : recognition… and request – non verbal –
hello. And, please don’t.
