September Evening

my paneer korma

with my college sophomore son
and his girlfriend

so sweet
in her white dress

with her long brown hair

I’m too young
I think

in a wine-woven haze
to have a son in college

with a girlfriend

Strolling down
to the ice cream parlor
I order crunchy cappuccino
in a cone

a baby scoop
but decadent enough

for a 55-year-old

Listening to a street musician
in Davis Square
who peddles his music
from place to place
though stuck in the 60’s and 70’s
Simon & Garfunkle
il Young…

I applaud heartily
and drop money

into his guitar case

An elderly couple
and a flower vendor
are noticeably
less animated

And I lick
my cool
September breeze-swirled

ice cream cone
as the stores and the street lights blend
into my wine-woven haze
