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, jeer wranglers on steeds

roping celery, potatoes, beans.


Lasses in hemp dresses cast

a shy eye at vendors, unkempt 


in guacamole tents, as passersby

give a try to risotto, tofu,


zukes, peppers, whole cukes

drenched in balsamic vinaigrette.
