Have a Great Weekend!


It was indeed a great weekend

A diverse

New York neighborhood

A predictable

Saturday evening


Rest, togetherness, gaiety

A typical

Nondescript night

suddenly shaken

by falling shreds of glass

like confetti

spectacular explosions

heard across the river

not fireworks

Yet again

A fearless declaration

of dread

by the faceless



St. Cloud residents

at the Mall

going about their

coupon redemption

prosaic weekend

unexpectedly awakened

to religious brandishing


had come shopping too

and decided

to leave behind

some playful

cutting -edge

conceited reminders


all being equal

in the eyes

of the Shaitan

New Jersey

ready to sail

just barely eliminated

the chance of being

added to statistics

of this weekend’s

incident debrief


At the headquarters of Hell

Infernos were ablaze

luminous and celebratory

For what seemed to have been

A great weekend indeed!
