Poem: Switcheroo


Camarena enters the cinema with a
large popcorn and a gerbil named Justice.
She exits with a box of
marshmallows and a cat named Mozzarella.

What happens in between is
largely hypothetical.

Brian enters a day spa with a
girlfriend the color of dark chocolate.
He exits with five lipstick
marks and a restraining order.

What happens in between was
fairly inevitable.

Giselle enters a car wash as
a neurosurgeon and never leaves.

What happens next is
crucially important.
