Once I liked
the fancy stuff
a designer latte
a truly fine Pinot Noir
one perfect tulip
lobster dipped in butter
you in a suit and tie
when it wasn't for a funeral
even a tux--once
but then
there's campfire coffee
from a battered pot
bluegrass and Two Buck Chuck
walleye fried in an iron skillet
your old wood-scented sweater
I wear to stay warm
now that fancy
doesn't live here anymore...
