Around

(NaPoWriMo, Day 8)



I awake to the sound 
of more sirens—
firetruck and ambulance 
this time—the weather has calmed,
the city has not--and visions 
of spinach artichoke dip 
spreading on multi-grain bread 
with round, browned 
and caramelized slices 
of oven dried tomato--
red on green and 
green and white
on brown.

  1. You have inspired me to think about my city as an hors d’oeuvre. Maybe London, Ontario is a canapé? I love your creativity, man. This is terrific stuff.
