The $9.89 purchase

He swiped his card
At an entertainment center
Popcorn?
Gatorade?
I should ask him someday
What was it that he bought
At a place identified richly
As a circus, a carnival, a magician, a fortune teller or a psychic?

A parade of elephants
Trained horses
And bearded ladies
March in my imagination
Followed by the sequined hucksters
Peddling their crystal-ball-brilliant
future.
