abecedarian

Ancient
bald headed men play
chess outside cafes
drinking strong coffee and
eating pistachios.
Frowning as their
gnarled
hands push on to victory.

In dusty streets throngs of tourists
juggle maps and flaunt their
knowledge of
local sites as they
meander through the streets

Noon

On the seaside
patio
quiet is broken by
radios tuned to
stations playing American
top forty
Umbrellas cast shadows on
violets in
window pots, and garden beds of
Xeranthemums and
yellow
zinnia.
