new poem: block party


block party

summer me thumb piano
cherry-stained fingerprints
belly rub white linen
cinnamon bark nettle tea
laundry line in rain
fire escape no ladder
air condition high
swallow swift overhead
dove coo for mimicking
linger sun fill lungs
summer poems come slow
pencil smudge paper sky
butterfly flirts with torso
sit bones dare bike ride
cracks on path hurt thrill
headphones blare erotic
city dawn funk fuck
mosquito slap arm swell
citronella restlessness
lemonade floods speech
poet grieves then lives
poet sweats then writes
