Summer appears gone.

Nights are
Cooler now
And the hot breeze is
Gone
Lift my head up straight!
Eyes open wide!
No sun-hammer on my brow,
Beat me down to the hot, ammonia pavement
Soon – rare pleasures await.
Coffee steams in the morning!
Sleep comes without sweaty thrashing!
But
My fireflies are gone.
Those organic-lemon sprinkles in my evening
Those lazy, beaming cruisers
Those blinking beacons of summer
And the back to school sales
10 years after school
Still sink my heart.
Fall has come.
A mixed blessing,
To be sure.
