Graphics for the poem "The Art of Presumption."
Painting by Waldemar Kazak



On Amtrak glam track,
where clickety-clack meets yakety-yak,
hoity-toity party pack,
going gaga over Dada,

         glares at bourgeois commuters,
         slaves to their computers,

with elegant arrogance
in spiritual ritual of catty chatter
to preserve their presumption
of social transcendence

         over hoi poloi riffraff trapped
         in arid desert of the mundane.

La-dee-dah!
