Ode to New England

Ketchup on scallops with
coleslaw and french fries

Wicked good iced coffee
cooling my insides

Blueberries, frost heaves,
and blustery springs

These are a few of my favorite things

Whoopie pies, devil dogs,
donuts from Dunkin'

Warm pies in autumn,
like mince meat and pumpkin

Candlepin bowling balls,
old wooden swings

These are a few of my favorite things

When it's 90

When I'm broiling

When the traffic is crawling, the horns honking, the cell phone won't stop ringing, the toilet's backed up, the dog has fleas, I lost the electric bill, it's time for my annual mammogram, there's a strange smell coming from the fridge...umm, where was I? Oh yeah,

When the stress is chronic,

I simply remember my favorite things

And then pop the tab . . .

. . . on a tonic!
