Underground carnival
barking through cars,
three ring wringers
squeezing dollars out of
trapped crowd,

Ralphie is the opening act,
selling basketball and baseball cards
and the free news
to the world at large
by giving him a dollar,
you give him a chance
at a hot meal,

after he rants and grouchily departs,
a whole new act comes,
bouncing through the car,
a roving dancing troupe jumping
really far,
aspiring stars risking lawsuits
and scars is par for the course
as they flip around the L train
as if it were the Danger Room.
