Joy of Joys

Exit Zero.

Cape May, New Jersey.

Three hours from home, slept soundly in my

very own row

(sis in the back, we’ll swap next time)

in the Pilot.

Victorian motel, with that

orange brick and that

highlighter blue pool.

Close to the beach and the

Washington Street Mall.

A blue door,

push

(no, pull)

Welcome to

Bath Time Cape May!

Checkerboard floor,

and a tub filled with

ducks.

I spy –

a bride and groom

a tennis player

the Statue of Liberty

like adopting a

please, Mommy, can I

keep it? new pet

who will be the

next

lucky duck?
