“I like brown beverages and…” (poem) (mine).

I like brown beverages and

stripping coriander with a friend

on the hot September stoop.

I like four books in a pile

with biggest on the bottom

and making spicy beans

and maybe even Loretta Lynn.

I like it when someone comes back

from a trip and they look a little

better than when they left.

I like the way one hand on my chest

and one on my back bookends

my heart and keeps it in.
