To Arlene…

FAVORITE COMFORT FOOD Anything chocolate. White rice. Sukiyaki.
HOME LOOKS LIKE Sweet peas, gladiolus, pansies, marigolds.
ON MY TABLE A glass vase filled with seashells.

South Beacon

A picket fence corrals the house.
Dick and Jane could live here.

I learn to iron handkerchiefs,
to embroider the French knot,

the lazy daisy. To stitch a swallowtail
on a dishcloth, to frost a cake

swept with soft sugar. Melt butter
on broiled toast, triangles of Wonder.
