How Was YOUR Day?

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

Eye went around today

Dressed like Alice In Wonderland

Looking for a home

For Stratospheric Universe 

And encountered two televisions:

One in a car dealership

With a man-eating volcano

Which turned into a contemporary


(with commercials showing sick chemo patients) —

And one in a great grandmother’s kitchen

Showing Scottish and Irish gangsters

Exclaiming “fuck” (repeatedly)

In the 1800’s
