Summer fireworks at home alone.
Independence Day from people.
I set fire to the BBQ grill
And let butter soaked peaches heat up
With melted chocolate on the flesh with chopped walnuts.
The wind carries the ashes away outdoors.
I bring my dessert indoors.
My chores include washing dishes, sweeping up, and mopping the floors.
Thank goodness I have a bathroom and not using outhouses.
The sun sets, and I look out at outer space.
Tomorrow, maybe I’ll make noodles.
Tonight I’ll make doodles of poodles,
And write jokes, riddles, and puzzles
To amuse myself.
