Bay scallop leaves
Harbor for boiling water, bay leaves
White wine, yellow onions, potatoes, corn, butter,
Cream, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley, and
The not last taste
Overlays scallops and corn
Of Zea mays var. saccharata out
Of season, there is no sexy way to say I miss you
Words discarded with shells at Jetties parking lot
Is always selfish in chowder.
Still, try to see the blue bowls garnished with parsley,
And pats of butter on beautiful cold days.
Recipe for a specific experience.
Oh Iowa sweet!
Become my yellow-white bouquet summer man.
