Life Is A Ride

four hot dogs with toppings
Brian Hogan

A hot dog

with just a little bit of mustard

color sprayed the sky in gusts

and flailing fire

“do you have any extra napkins for the little one?”

mothers asked of the ice cream man

sticky fingers

smear the skin 

on cheeks alive with gratitude

and the sprays of color

spatter on me like wet mounds of paint

when suddenly I realize

everything real is an illusion

and every illusion is real.
