water day

6 May

minty coffee laced with sweat
desperation hides
the swollen ankle of regret
irrigation glides
dragonflies hover over you
adoration rides
sunscreen scents and chesnut boy
sun-dappled muddy slides

*my lame attempt at poetry this fine thursday morning. we’re hanging out in the front yard full of water, trying too cool on another 90• plus day.

**i also want to wish my dear friend/brother charlie a happiest of birthdays.

    You have captured well so many nuances of not only another ‘ordinary’ day but also all the shades each day holds for us if only we would look.
