dusted off from the CM Poetry slam...  Reply with quote  

back in the day. I came across it and thought as the season approaches it'd be, you know.,


Summer

by Q

Slipping knots
skipping stones
skinning knees
breaking bones.

A soda pop high
on a cracker jack day
the AC's out
in the video arcade

No haircut, no belt, no bath
jean shorts frayed, shirt tail's free
socks that don't match are fine with me.

Find me a river, some train tracks that shake.
I'll flatten some pennies, we'll scream in the wake
of trains, planes, and giant cars like my dad's
where the back seat's a cockpit with machine guns at hand.

There are insects to hunt, there are crickets that talk.
If a fly had no wings, would you call it a 'walk'?
Science is hot, sweaty and cool
by the lakeside, in the woods, in the ditch by the school.

I don't care about voting,
I don't know from a tax
My fingernails are growing
my ear's full of wax.

When you see me again
I'll be clean and on time
my books will be read and
my shoes sorta tied.

But now it's summer and
all I need is the weather
endless days, starry nights

and they go on forever.
