A Blue Kazoo Pantoum
weightless blue musical flute
seized from your suitcase at luggage inspection
on a family Christmas trip to New York City
weightless plastic toy
just who were you? the Pied Piper?
2004 tsunami zoom to The Big Apple
a simple kazoo- not illegal drugs or weapons
who were you now? the Pied Piper?
were you to groove and kazoo through the streets?
a kazoo – neither bong nor bazooka
booming voice scarring sweet souls, ruining memories
were you to flitter and flute-toot through the streets?
a kazoo – looted from your suitcase
other too-heavy baggage ruled the truth of the doom
