Okra

slimy okra

There’s nothing wrong with okra,
Except the slime. Test it on your friends:
Fry it up, ask them over
See who takes you up on okra.

Sunny Afternoon

Golden Gate Bridge postcard
fuzzy stickers on 1970s postcard

This postcard makes me remember
A sunny afternoon in the Sunset,
Watching the tourists circle
For parking places. Bright red
Convertible pulls up
A familiar face smiles hello
And two black Scotties
Pop up from the back seat.
