Roadside Attraction: NPM #17

A Saturday drive led us to a roadside attraction–and a poem.

Roadside Attraction

Not to be missed

pepto-pink dinosaur

large enough to house a gift shop

garish T-rex

with a view through

carnivorous teeth

visible from the back seat

on an endless car ride:

the perfect stop.

Who imagined

concrete dinosaurs

as large as life


drawing us back

to the land before time

with a perfect robin’s-egg blue sky

and rocky, snow-topped mountains

as the backdrop.
