Summer Advice

At ten-thirty this morning, the sun makes my arms feel like they’re about to become wings; the shade is the spirit of cool and quiet things.

Summer Advice

Kiss each other
in the shade

after you’ve

a juicy
ripe peach.

No shade,
imagine the tree.

No peach,
imagine the taste.

No one, no one
with a heart

of reach.
