nexus

i drove
my new bmw
over to aunt bea’s
she smiled
and
giggled a bit
and said
do your remember
your first pursuit
of
the american dream
you and your cousin
tommy
hatched a scheme
where
after river waters
receded
from flooding
the two of you
scooped up stranded fish
and
sold them
around the neighborhood
a true capitalist dream
low investment
with
high returns
you
elected to fulfill
your young fantasies
and
bought
scores of sour cherry candies
you were sick
for a week
don’t you find it
interesting
how we don’t seem
to learn
that
marketing schemes
are not really
our
dreams
