throwback meal

had a taste for a
throwback meal
conjured up the
sloppy joe–added some
Brussels sprouts . . .
green on the scene.

persuaded the palate to
downplay tater tots or
fries . . . decision was a
solid one.

one bite into a burger
that’s really not a burger
and I remember playing
Super Mario Bros. on
Super Nintendo and
Sonic the Hedgehog on
Sega Genesis, staying up
past 10:00 pm on the weekends
at the clubhouse while overlooking
the pool we swam in hours
before.

good times every day,
fun could be found
everywhere we looked–even
on a bad day.
