On Wednesday

Or maybe it was Tuesday, the interim mayor
held a parade for the underachievers.
Half of them didn’t show up.
Those who did yawned, threw
a string of half broken lights
over their bumpers and drove
erratically through
a mass
of
outoftune bandmates.

There were no prizes.
There were no spectators.

Afterward, everyone got a haircut
and went grocery shopping.
Disposable cameras sat in junk
drawers and glove boxes for years.
