Taking the Folks for a Ride
By Mike County

Stinking, dreaming out loud
in balloons overhead
Handle arcade change like

peep show quarters;
ate for years, but
wouldn’t put lips to food.
Nowadays he reads from

the Collected Charles Whitman,
spray paints his own poems
to a canvas stretched
with old cinema screens.

Holes enough
to drive both parents through.
