Summer scribbling HAGS in junior yearbooks.
Summer stretching languidly into sunsets.
Summer truth-or-daring wildness.
Summer like a rabid dog
Summer spitballing into closed pools.
Summer slashing silhouettes across heat-risen horizons.
Summer bikini, on sale 50% off.
Summer slamming shoulder blades against apartment garage cars.
Summer napping to the asphalt heaving like a second heartbeat in the record July temperatures,
dreaming of siamese twins.
Summer saying my name.
Summer saying yours.
Summer like the wrong side of a knife.
Summer split open by car alarms wailing for recollection.
Summer sizzling into overheated elastic bikini tops.
Summer slinking back to mothers’ phone calls at 11.
Summer aspirin for a pounding headache.
Summer backdoor shut tight.
