Weekend Pass

When the sun reappears
on the weekend, even late Sunday
The cover comes off the BBQ
Quick hurry-trips to the store
Bricks, Beer, Burgers  and Brats
Top the list
Chips, and dip, and salsa
carrots and celery, Tomatoes and onions
for the fresh breasts
grapes dangling from bunches 
firm between the thumb and forefinger
sweet to the tongue

Early watermelon and whole-freezer corn
don’t forget the foil, the butter
the paper plates
the ice
Faces change for many
from work-week-desperation
to frantic-anticipation
All are desperate broken down
a weekend respite—rejuvenation
away from the tedia
Weather changes plans
and all are confronted with each other’s malaise
dammed to indoors with no sports-summus
When the sun reappears
the race to the store is on
a weekend pass
