4/100 America, the Carnival

Step right up, ladies,
get a close look at it, 
the wonder of suburbia:
blacktopped roads, silver sidewalks,
and a minivan in every driveway.

This
is the place where dreams are made,
where your man comes home 
every night at five fifteen,
to kiss your cheek and lift your baby.

This place is
cancer-free,
bankruptcy-free,
and earthquake-proof.

That's right ladies,
you can almost smell the apple pies
cooling on the sill.

What a fantasy!
the miracle of instant coffee is missing from this picture. i feel that very strongly. probably because i have a betty crocker cookbook from the 1950s that extols its virtues for the housewife trying to "economize" and raves about how it can be used to flavor cake-icing.

or at least that's my 20 seconds worth of free-association theatre. carry on. :)
