The Most American

It is the most  American of all holidays: St. Patrick’s day….the rites of spring fully exercised….fully exposed….

Protestant girls in green tight tops showing tits to drunken boys whose masculinity wanes from day to day…..always check on what’s trending….

Catholic hipsters line 5th Avenue…..flasks outwardly open….smells of whiskey….odors of ales…..midnight mistakes will be made….

All around the banners of Americana:Budweiser….Coors..Miller Lite…..Boston’s Sam Adams (made in Cincinnati ) posted on windows of bars and taverns and diners and all that will be allowed…soon the riches will flow..

And Catholic churches are empty….there are no prayers lifted….nor candles lit….

What….You think you’re in Ireland?
