Item Number 65727

We all have our hobbies. Mine
Is standing in a Costco line,
Apparently, on Friday night.
It’s certainly a weekly rite
And has been fifteen years or so.
Them’s hobby numbers, right? Although
It doesn’t help me to unwind
Or recreate. In fact, I find
My urge to stand here wanes or waxes
With the crowd: A large one taxes
My enthusiasm for
Enqueuing on a concrete floor,
And all this month (which means all year)
The whole town spends its Fridays here,
Or so it seems, and I know why:
$9.95 per pizza pie.
