The Miller Girls Came to Town

Relatives of seals are dribbling

our hearts on cold mousy noses

Acting interested in what drinks

we choose, and why

 

I hear myself ask one

"Do you have a jacuzzi in that bag?"

 

They pack all their flashing plastic

carnival prizes into a particularly sad cardboard box

and they leave

 

Stepping over a social media manager shaking

a chicken wing at them from the floor
