carmel lady
by t.zoey.benally

wandered isles
stainless racks
no high fructose here

she would like this salt
shaker, lady bug in reverse
with armed pepper grinder

i know where everything is
in her house, home even to me
cornflower wal-mart bags saved

wicker baskets, metal mesh
flowers explode
around her private cafe

gentle oasis, lets me think it's home
i order what she would order
but subtitute soy for milk
