'AppleSystem Font Poem' by Gerard Sarnat

Updated: Nov 25, 2021

Firing up Apple Pay anticipating

first time in any grocery store

in more than fifteen months,

I fulfill pipe dream of picking

own just-ripe juicy produce,

mostly on-sale food-stuffs,

but am sad that my fave

salad bar is (of course)

looong gone: saying

Hello! to old-friend

checkers, they tell

tell me that buffet

became a distant

but fond memory

which kept away

many doc visits.
