serving lunch


                                                  Two napkins, one for under the chin,
                                                   a bowl of cream of tomato soup with croutons,
                                                   grilled cheese sandwich cut into four triangles,
                                                   a bowl of mandarin oranges with juice,
                                                    and requested glass of lemonade and water, with ice.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
