Field Notes (from Champion, Ohio)

today I am spending an eternity waiting
in the drive-thru of Taco Bell just to get a taste
of the new Dr. Pepper Vanilla Float Freeze.

today is when I learned that giraffes are just dinosaurs.

today a cherry red Pontiac Firebird
with a Greg Brady is God bumper sticker
sped past me on the bypass. 

today I am late to visit my dying grandmother.

only two of these things are true, 
but I'll never tell you which.
