SONNET OF THE EVERYDAY
Calico kitten lounges on the lawn as
traffic inches along and
pre-teens middle-schoolers jabber on about
south park and ball parks and their
latest exploits on the baseball diamond –
Ella watches at the window where her
own son should be standing only
he’s living with her mother in Jamesburg
she sees him on Sundays and
every other Thursday when they
go to McDonald’s and he
dips his nuggets in honey sauce –
that is, when she lays off the pipe and
keeps her morning beers to a minimum.
