(Scorching red-brick sidewalk
Smooth French music
Bubbles up and floods the street
The cooling voice of Charles Aznavour
This sanctuary of shade
Mahogany and rattan
Table for one
Tall blue glass of clinking lemon water
Sips of Chardonnay
The Regatta, Old Sculpin Gallery opening, Yacht Club
Sunday afternoon lawn party
The huge white sheets of
Two giant schooners slide out of the harbor
The cool easy flow of money.
Below the white linen tablecloth
At my feet
Pecking at almond croissant crumbs.
