Here Comes The Next Poem in the Very Long Series About the Summer of 2006

August 21, 2006
A weekend of pure busy-ness almost all weekend long

including but not limited to the very enjoyable
complete sensory overload of wine tasting
the scenery
the views
the grapes hanging down in huge dark clusters from the vines
the hot smell from the wooded sides of the road when driving

and of course the wines themselves
sometimes spicy
sometimes dry
a white that smelled like stinky cheese
a red that smelled like green bell peppers
a pale as hell bone-dry rosé

Then this morning Bill walked me to work on his way to
his first day back in his classroom
where he will get ready for
school to start next week
and on the way we saw a very dapper cab driver
wearing seersucker pants and a red shirt and a tie
and a jaunty straw hat with a band with a feather in it
