when eating pizza,

when eating pizza,
we will experience gaps –
perhaps it will taste

regional, or maybe just one
town over, a known measurement

my knees get weak when

my knees get weak when
we are down to our last jar
of honey – somehow,

you know this and have struck a
deal with the local beekeeper

waltz the local

waltz the local
color, yet chart your
own course – it doesn’t
always have to be
for or against

as much as i sometimes

as much as i sometimes
hate to say it – on a sunday,
nothing beats gathering
around a table
with friends
and a tray of lovingly
raised, dry rubbed,
precisely smoked,
meticulously measured,
happily served meats

want to start a farm?
he asks.

you mean quitting our jobs
and taking day trips to the outskirts
of the city to flex and bend
underneath unfractured sunlight,
soak in fresh soil and coax
a plot of earth to carry to term
the fruits of our labor, with crisp
air between our teeth?

i just want to grow strawberries
on our roof, he replies.
