freudian funhouse

She attended begrudingly the
birthday luncheon of a geriatric man
she didn’t know at all

Over soggy bread and soft pasta,
she was transfixed by the
funhouse effect of the restaurant,

large smoky mirrors and shiny chrome —
elderly matriarchs with painted eyebrows
shaped like surprised rainbows,

something her friend had never noticed
before in his entire life, which she found
odd since he was afraid of clowns
