Dinner with Silver

San Clemente, CA

The conversation turns from refi rates and whether the Lakers will repeat
to conjectures about heaven, disquisitions on the odds of later lives
as light rays or as Mumbai untouchables on the grinding karmic wheel,
or in God's jeweled home, or gone like lamps in the vastnesses of space...
The dessert arrives just in time, and the talk turns to strawberries
that grow down the street, as sweet as maple in the mist of these hills,
and how one day they'd like to go again, through the green veins in the
to ride the Arabian horses on Santa Catalina Island.
