For Seattle

It’s late. I’m full of fish and exhaustion. I can only muster haiku. But I bring you my best at this moment, I promise.

Fresh, planked halibut
With a pesto beurre blanc sauce.
The Pinot, for me.

Seattle, you cad!
How your Puget Sound tempts me —
But I have to work.

Lobsters and coffee,
Immigrants and stoner cliques:
This be Washington.
