Until The Reindeer Lost Their Minds - Poem by Robert Rorabeck

Chasing through the parks of the beaver and the
Chasing through the aspens, where the young hearts fire
Like roman candles
And bottle rockets: leap out of the school yards
And ask, what is going on here-
And there are blue lights in the jasmine, and drunken
Wishes with the goldfish who are so pale:
They can remember the carnivals that left them orphaned,
And moved away from this suburbia-
Ran up into the snows and forest fires,
And became oblivious- until the reindeer lost their minds
And turned around as if in a spell,
Tramping the grail in the tundra that was never found.
