Venice Pier

(Be a nonconformist for a day)

If you’re sitting around being bored on a Sunday

And not really looking forward to Monday

Put on your sandals and be of good cheer

Just take a walk by the Venice Pier

You’ll see girls with bare asses


Dogs wearing sun glasses

A lady quite weighty hula-hooping at eighty

Girls getting hustled by fellows much muscled

A kid selling roses, a man dressed like Moses

Guys doing flips with rings through their noses

Then sit yourself down at a sidewalk cafe

And while you’re sipping a Cafe au Lait

Reflect on what you’ve seen and heard

Unwind, relax and enjoy the absurd

Geraldine Forer Spagnoli

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
