Frito Pie

An amber blue sky beamed, sweating the waxed paper cups
filled to overflow with despondant suicidal ice silently
screaming infamous lines from some colorized classic.

In the Year Before Classic, when all you had was what you had,
no new formulae, no razzle-dazzle, no extreme adverts,
when all colored carbonation was Coke, there was Frito Pie.

Frito Pie, how unpie-like thou art, yet as tasty as any
pomme creation.  Long slit bag, all the way up the hip,
topped with food for ponderous thought: chili and cheese.

For the cheese ran, chili chased, and the eater not far behind.
And in the end of ends, running though seated, hunger unabated,
dreaming of more succulent, thigh slit, barely warm Frito Pie.

Though mountainous memories pale in the distance, primal
red and yellow in orange and yellow glow still, emitting
the scent of Little League summer baseball: Frito Pie.

Thanks guys for the reads and replies.

PdV...there is a recipe there. Slit bag longways, fill with chili, top with cheese. Is simple good stuff.

Martie, yanno, I don't think I've had ballpark frito pie for about two decades, but it was the comfort food for winners, losers, and spectators during the late 70's and early 80's, at least for little league.

Now this is exactly what I mean when I say I remembered something I thought I'd forgotten.

Oh. Sort of your point, huh?

Deliciously warm writing, Ali.

and I exit, still shaking my head at the irony of the intro of "the new classic coke".

Thanks for helping me to recall the root/ origen of the 7-layer taco dip, too.

It's all good stuff, as is this.

Having never eaten frito pie, I can safely say I'm officially out of the loop.  But boy oh boy, did this poem ever make me hungry... haha... I have to go upstairs and make myself something to eat now, despite the time of night.

Thanks for the lovely thoughts, Alicat... even if the memory-dislodging was a little lost on me.

In an emergency.
