Red, white and blue

Loosely loping
Kobe and Swoosh 
college-bound brothers

twist and fro
shimmy and gloss 
strappingly tall
sun burn kissed.

When small
they scampered ahead,
we mothers reaching, net and reel.
Boys, watch where you’re going!

now All American
Caught in the USA
Processed in the USA
Whiting.
 wait, whaaat?

strange fruit-see
the fish are jumping.

Lobster in Menemsha
