Summertime Suppers

Summertime Suppers

thick-cut tomatoes
pickles, onions, buns,
baked beans and ballparks
burgers bursting with hot juice
on the back decks, by the poolsides of our lives

with blackened grill marks
searing the surface of our summertime suppers

with family and friends,
red plastic cups
paper plates.

    And the iguanas dance in the desert/a thousand miles away from this place/and this face: stoned immaculate.
