When did the minivan

become a clown car?

This random thought

overtakes my mind

as I watch kid #10

pile out of the van,

screaming and running

through a parking lot

while their mom waddles out,

cigarette in mouth

and I try not to judge

as kid #3 pees

on a dying tree

but how odd I must be,

as I sit

quietly, alone, smokeless,

and of all things,

I pee indoors.
