    Prosecco in the chiller
    French brie with rice crackers
    Carrot and celery sticks
    We are off to a picnic!

    We walked a mile
    deep into the curve
    of the sandy bay
    passed the nude beach
    waved at saggy breasts and balls

    We set up the sun tent
    spent a Sunday morning
    making out
    But we told everyone
    that “We were off to a picnic!”
