July Poem 16

I, Pliny the Younger,

You, and your brother

Were filled to capacity

By the crowd that had

Traveled to the Pliny and Sons

Muppet contest of painterly skill.

 

I wanted to wonder

If events throughout

The neighbor’s night out

Escaped from the toga

From all corners of Greece.

 

But the grass feels great on your feet

In the box set aside for celebrities

And the old man from the balcony.
