At Panera

Under the iced tea spigot, someone has placed a page of loose-leaf paper covered with incomplete math equations: 1324 x 6; 1901 x 2; 9321 x 9… A piece of homework long abandoned; that school year complete without it; now blots up drips of iced tea left by careless patrons on our way to sunny beaches and this outdoor seating area where I sit, under a blue canvas umbrella, wondering if it will rain.
