Slow roasted

-

In the half-light of fire

Synthetic fibers recoil and wilt

Unnoticed

“Jeez, what happened to my gloves?” we might later lament.

 

But now we lean closer

And watch the steam curl and rise

Without remark

Except to say, “Man, I wish this fire would get hotter.”

 

And then we quietly contemplate

The meaning of life and death

Only to conclude

That Jeremy’s idea,“vanilla vodka and root-beer,” was not so bad.
