We usually go visit my Nanna and Papa down in Florida once a year, but that didn't happen last year. Hopefully, I will get to taste my Papa's incredible burger's this summer<3

Floridian Cicada Thrum

April 20, 2021

The late afternoon humidity
causes my drink to drip
ice-cold condensation
where it pools on glass tabletop
The whirring of cicada wings
thrum the air graced
by hot golden rays of sun
and the pool reflects wavy lines on the overhang
Damp towel around my neck
stops beads of water from undried hair
the faint smell of gas and potato chips
waft through the heat
The hiss of gently made rounds
of ground beef minimally seasoned
with salt and pepper,
as classic as this moment is
Ice clinks as the familiar sound
of catching up on family drama
weaves around me and
my mouth waters at the smell
Ketchup and mustard
keep it simple and
cover the charred edges of
a burger I call perfection.
In 300 words or less, bring to life a dish (or meal).
