Summer
red and white checkered tablecloths and hi-top shoes
iced tea, french fries
smiles on lips – red cherry tomatoes in salad
five best friends stuck together, sticky layers of baklava

Fall
green plastic booths and cool mint lip-gloss
cherry coke, onion rings
secrets on lips – peeling off layers of baklava
two friends alone, glued tight like gum to a table

Winter
cold bitter wind and hot bitter coffee
potato soup, hummus
giggles on lips – loose change tinkling in a purse
tinkling change, life changes, friends scattered

Spring
yellow roasted peppers and dandelion flowers
flip flops, shish kabob
cold smiles on lips – ice in sprite
the baklava crumbles
