In the designated picnic area


Two men (pencils poised and ready)

Argue art’s intensities while a third,

Bored and vaguely pissed tries

Backpedalling through his memories

To see if he can isolate that one wrong

Choice that soured his life while a

Woman, print dress, tangled hair,

Too much blusher Takes your partners

With a dying tree, sashays in rhyme

With its guttering leaves as she thinks

On her boy drafted six months ago

Who came home in a box just last week.
