Emerald City ’09 haikus

Comic Book Tattoo
Is dauntingly oversized
“I’ll hold that for you.”

Friends appear with scores:
Old romance comics! Squid cards!
Wastebasket? TV?

Lunch? Didn’t, really —
just powered through the day with
coffee and Top Pot.

Eternal questions:
How’s the show? See that costume?
Is that comic free?

Hear about parties
Show enthusiasm, don’t
go: this means we’re old.

As I’m walking past
Mom with camera to daughter:
“Please don’t make that face.”

Lost, but then I see
Tower of pink godzillas:
Thanks for the landmark.

The person who raves
“Love it! Be right back with cash!”
Will never return.
