We went to dinner
with the kids Nunzio’s Pizza
at Chalet Fondue in Windham New York.
Base of a mountain. Picnic tables facing sky.
Waiting to order pizza from Nunzio himself
Sicilian man you could tell he loved his pizza
I was wearing an African dress Chesray made
a woman waiting for pizza
asked about the dress she does
costumes for TV she said her mother
died of covid a few weeks ago memorial
last night serving Nunzio’s pizza.
Her mother liked pizza. We exchanged
numbers with her and talked about
Distance Visiting and we ate far away
from other people all eating pizza
trying not to think pandemic pandemic pandemic
even enjoying our pizza, and the large sky,
and the new woman who might come to visit.
