backyard smiles – May 30

5.30.2016

voices and smiles

spread throughout

the back yard

while brats grill

beer foams

and the family

connects.

 

people gave their

lives so that

we could do this

and not have to

look out for

secret police

bad banditos

or treachery.

 

to breathe

the air they

bought

is our gift.
