Impressionist Lunch (aros #14)

I am the older
but little brother 
towers over me
more me with him 
more safe there

Photo hunt fake outs
Thrum of fists on table
#5 on high score list
Good burgers
buns too big to eat

Coke snorting laughter
not quite 
but almost
someday I will catch him

Just one more game


back to my quiet den
for more winter
