next on mad men poetry field trip 'Mad Men' coming attractions poetry: The episode 703 'Field Trip' teaser in verse“Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner is famously spoiler-averse, so much so that the show’s “next on” scenes have become all but inscrutable — a string of quick-cut non-sequiturs that say next to nothing about the next week’s episode, except that often someone is telling someone else to shut the door or sit down.

The seemingly random bits of dialogue strung together brings to mind the refrigerator-magnet poetry that half your friends had in the ’90s. With that in mind, Zap2it will offer up a poetic interpretation of each week’s coming attractions. (Here’s last week’s.)

This week’s selection is “Field Trip,” after the title of next week’s (April 27) episode.

Field Trip

Hurry, hurry,
put your jacket on.
This a very enviable piece
of PR.

A flower dress, mid-calf boots; she looks up.

“Let’s have dinner.” Knock, knock, knock,
Room 217.

Vase. Table. Plunk.

It’s already done — will you just look at it?
What the hell
is going on

We have a situation; are you there?
Back and to the right,
he hangs up.
“Trust me” — and the Sexiest Man Alive
in 1987 smirks

Here’s the teaser for “Field Trip”:
