Happy Campers

gather in the shady corner
of the park
making happy sounds
standing to greet each other
smiling, nodding, patting
each other on the shoulder
they are the happy ones
they are the lively ones
they are the drunks
and narcomaniacs
keeping company
on the other side of the fountain
keeping a safe distance
from the suburban women
strolling their toddlers
strapped in behind chrome bars
shaded under hoods
of navy blue
the color of success
