Waiting for 5:00

My mother filled this enormous canvas with sins. Even the balloons have naughty details! Her painting inspired a poem that appears in Of Burgers & Barrooms, an anthology from Main Street Rag.

The poem is also included in my collection, Secret Formulas & Techniques of the Masters, (Brick Road Poetry Press, 2018).
