breakfast with elvis.

Standard

as i walked in, i looked around and asked out loud,

“is this elvis day or something?”

i heard a deep voice following me in who answered,

“you better believe it baby.”

and that is how we found ourselves sharing a breakfast space.

luckily, elvis read the sign, waited to be seated

climbed up on the counter and belted out hits

elvis worked the crowd and met a tiny dancer

and changed costumes before my second cup of coffee

it was a full breakfast.

“to me, john lennon and elvis presley were punks,

because they made music that evoked those emotions in people. “

he was a ‘well-seasoned’ magic man

who came in

to entertain the youngest children

 while he wasn’t smooth

 his jokes and tricks and props and velvet

had been around a long time

the children loved every trick

opened their eyes wide with wonder

as doves and bunnies and coins and cards and wands and scarves

appeared and disappeared

in all kinds of unexpected places

 they eagerly

 volunteered to help him

 squealed and giggled and clapped with pure delight

until they lost their breath with laughter

he was a showstopper of the highest order

who had found the perfect audience.

 (seisiún refers to sit-in performances in a relaxed social setting, in which the entertainment is intermingled with the consumption of ale, stout, beer and conversation.)

the essential is to excite the spectators. If that means playing hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an aquarium, you do it. – orson welles
