paddocks petitioned by…(an) electric fence

I have persuaded my
Shetland pony to open
a pop-up shop to sell
its merch, swag, & albums.
It’s on the same block in New
York’s SoHo shopping grid
as those high-end boutiques
Célin & Moschino. A line

has formed down the block
& around the corner. Un-
fortunately for the pony
that line is for the Pablo
pop-up shop that Kanye
has opened just next door.
