Poem: Summer Cycle 

summer entered
in lavish american feasts grilled, charred
with dripping
strawberries and technicolor fireworks in the evenings
summer rested
in our trips to coney island, seaside heights
so hot
the mermaids and mysterious neon alleys sizzled
summer left us
in perpetual august, perennial and a reverie
and echoes
the memory in our worn baseball caps and stagnant pools
Pin It
