Antler Cakes

The homeless outcast befriended him and cheerfully advised,

“Wear an unadorned paper hat to the cardboard festival.

Once there, it’s worth the wait in line for vegetarian antler cakes.

They’re served from plywood squares, so they taste like pine,

But it’s better to wear them on your head.

The noise of a musical saw will enhance the displays

Of flattened shoe boxes, mailing tubes and stacks of grocery bags.”
