late afternooon - that magical golden
wine o'clock at their house on
the porch -
port wine cheese & triscuits
gallo hearty burgundy
talk of politics and of
what an ass so & so was
S's soothing voice, never raised,
offering a dry, apropos, observant remark
F cracking up at her own jokes
their dog, Pepper
a beautiful moment with
S - I had a special
connection with him -
he told me of a memory
he had as a boy that he
would never forget - & I
told him that I would
never forget the moment
he told me his memory -
