beneath the big dipper

i

the pepsi sippers smear

beneath the big dipper

blackpool between my ears

ii

pleasure beach, love is here

beneath the big dipper.

i heart oompah-pah bears.

iii

carousel riders rear

beneath the dig dipper

pennants of palms and hair

iv

Lichtenstein clings to her

beneath the big dipper

she wows this day tripper

v

the sea, the sky, the pier.

beyond the big dipper

i write, wish you were here.

  1. Thank you, Ingrid.
    The experience (adorable) came first, then the words. There was the inevitable shuffling. The repeating line suggested itself sometime later. But the punctuation (scant) was a last minute inclusion. It is always a surprise what a difference a comma (and a day) makes – also, it was so tempting to insert a possessive apostrophe somewhere in the carousel line… and maybe I Will.
