71. Postmodern Playmates

A beached boat,
a bronze huntress
in the middle of the park:
welcome to the actualization of our
contemporary world.

At least the sunshine is
still the same as it was for
illuminating the pair of playmates
in the same coy and dappled way
it has for millennia:

it could be a lord & lady like any
leaping over a resurrected
metal dinosaur
in a game of catch.

Not until the wind slaps me into
that I realize that they are in
T-shirts and tank tops,
in jeans,
playing Frisbee
in a world of endless
where bears beg and
rows of heads spin,
on discs of sun-baked
