A Historenga by Jeffrey L. Salter and Carlos Colon
Mid-afternoon shirtsleeves this mornings's parka in tow
Redbud blossoms her whisper on the wind
Nesting colonies 13 recalcitrant eagles soaring
Just my luck the bull market loaded for bear
Hungry fortuneteller: "Which cereal is charmed?"
Heaving chests the Boston Tea Party
Author given key to city his books banned
Midnight one torch lights another
George grinds his wooden dentures sleepless
Standoff: poodle and a powdered wig
