My Canada Day Night

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

My Bedroom  8:19am

Boy did Eye have fun!

With the over 50’s crowd

Complete with geriatric lovers

In each other’s arms

Under the dappled ceiling

Of red and green

In front of their country western band

Eye danced to “Good Golly Miss Molly”

In close proximity to a shy-faced cashier

Whose self-contained freeing up

Allowed me to know another
