Vegan rodeo &  gluten-free fair

 

Cowgirls ride in on broccoli,

clowns roll out barrels of beets.

 

Fans back from Burning Man,

Walden for assholes, desert

 

of smack, dare wranglers to rope

celery, carrots, beans.

 

Lasses loll unkempt, swish dresses

of hemp in guacamole tents

 

as dreadlocked guys tell passersby

sample kale, risotto, tofu,

 

zukes, peppers and cukes

drenched in balsamic vinaigrette.
