A Short Walk Away

Saga of the Green Felt Hat

green felt caught in wind
rolling along he wet walk
progress stopped by pane


green felt rolls back out
rescued and then staged
for owner to find


green felt blows along
captured by Samaritan
now caps the day's news

three dollar mini pizzas
evening at Amber

Mac & Jack's African Amber - a great medium amber beer, tasty but not bitter.
Amber - located at 1st & Blanchard - good happy hour appetizers but a little trendier than my normal kind of place.
