Today she will wear pjs to the market

part her hair on the other side

run a teabag through the coffee grinder

and put orange juice on her cereal

Today is a turquiose-eye-shadow kind of day

A braless Wednesday

as The Girls dangle near her belt

A day for Dollar Store shopping

She’ll buy a Liberace DVD

and two cans of Beefaroni, even though she’s vegan

Barefoot on the sidewalk

Deliberately stepping in dog poop just to feel the squish

and leaving human pawprints behind as she

heads for the library to read Ayn Rand


Today is a day for yodeling

on Main Street

And writing lesbian love letters to Sara Palin

Wednesdays are made for fun
