vacation at the bungalow

we played card games
with stale chips as chips

most days, though,
were spent with noses
pressed against cold glass

We Americans
have no need
of pyrotechnics
to make a bang.

The implosion of
our democracy is
a spectacle visible
to all the world.

Oh, the urge to stop and smell
a peach (and give it a squeeze).
You've been disappointed
in Junes past, so you settle for
one more pint of strawberries.

August you'll be tired of peaches,
but not yet ready for a hard pear.

Six months from now you'll accept
anything approaching ripeness.
