So, Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryout prompt was for an exercise in surrealism…. Not something I have explored before, but here goes.
Tuesday NightsThe Tuesday special at the Dali Vegan Tavern, Sports Bar and Burlesque Extravaganza Was always brussel sprouts flambé, Prepared table-side by the tuxedoed Octopus staff and their portable electric eels. The tiny cabbages instinctually delivered themselves Each Monday night through the back door mail slot To begin their marination in rum and pomegranate. Lines formed early in the alley between the club And the fenced in wolf pasture next door. Most cliental being delivered by flying fish taxis And three wheeled crustacean rickshaws, All at the mercy of the black bear Maitre D And his meandering sense of priorities; Time being somewhat fluid at this establishment. The sports bar was in the basement and Featured games in seventy-two HD aquariums And thirty-six varieties of sea grass smoothies on tap. Only mature herbivores with character references Were permitted through the porthole at the top of the stairs To witness the stage show of toothless carnivores Shedding their fur under blood red lighting with A backdrop of waterfalls flowing uphill.
