Trademark Characters

An ant attempting
to successfully cross
a busy city street

is like

a human trying
to maneuver its way
across Disneyland
without getting stopped
for impromptu photoshoots
with trademark characters.

The ant only has to worry
about death by squishing.

The fate of the human
in Disneyland
is much, much worse.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
