Visiting Hours at Sunny Viewbygreenmountaineer©
Faces scrubbed and medium pink,
rare as cube steak a week ago Sunday,
incorporated the visiting room
as golf every Saturday Dad
with Soccer Mom and Listen Up Beth
said he had more chores to do,
and a blue haired lady room thirty two
cheek by jowl with her daughter
bobbed up and down on her thyroid,
awake long enough to say hello
to someone she thought she ought to know,
while Charlie wearing his Christmas tie
he always wears on visiting day
shouted "Whatsa matter, Fred?
Price agas too much again?"
at the automatic door
that opened for a little girl
whose plastic bag of Cheerios
spilled when she started to cry.
