Windfall

it’s the smirk that explains
this is a post-irony thing
in Nicaraguan hand gestures
way back in the monkey brain
where metaphors and signs go
later to emerge in Lit classes
a laugh track from the gallows
swing low, sweet Cadillac
could this be a cliff hanger?
at the Saturday morning serials
a nod to metropolis machines
that run commentary with seriousness
at the bottom of the screen
it’s hard to be funny in an epigram
