Writers' Showcase

Overheard At A Party
by Joanna M. Weston

promised a jar of crab-apple jam
        tied up at the Customs Shed
reads five or six books at a time
        takes electrics in his stride
insurance covered damage from the flood
        when we had dinner up-Island
played bean-toss with his son
        changes diet every three months
peach cobbler made today and blackberry
        computer ate three files
there’s a bag of cans and bottles
        leaves on Wednesday for art
plans for your birthday
        he took a moon-shot yesterday
