MAD AS A HATTER

When-
and on what-
ever platform

you happen 
to be standing 

when you start to hear that 
nasally sweet band 
brand 

of
gentle jazz—come nosing

not exactly at—but more sort of
indirectly 
towards you,

from no source 
that's discernible,
and certainly—
with no explanation whatsoever;

try not to panic.
And realize

that there is really
only one little 
decision to make (albeit over 
and over again)—

to make friends
with it. Not permanent-
ly or for ever 

but just—
this one time. Just this 
very minute. 

And if you can do that
for a second,

no matter 
which—train you get on; then

congratulations
my friend—you can get off it

whenever 
you feel like—and 

tell them all
about Disneyland.
