Day 114 – Hysteria at the Wreck Room

Maybe I’m (definitely) out of my head
but there is something hilarious about all this,
something which tickles the pieces of brain
that are still firing,
not completely soaked in suds:

A nail art infomercial!

Oh it pleases me endlessly,
giggling at this big secret joke
that nobody’s seeming to notice.

Blown up on this huge screen
where they play music videos and movies,
lots of peppy pretty things to look at on the dance floor,
with all these made-up city girls,
slurring and writhing and
not
noticing
at
all
that they’re being sold the wonders
of enamel and foil and French tips.

Did the guy responsible for the entertainment tonight
fall asleep?
Is this just par for the course,
or is this something
special
for New Year’s?!

I don’t know, I might be (definitely) out of my head,
but there is something hilarious about all this.
