August 15

Only in my life
would I find myself
thawing a bottle of wine
   in the middle of summer.
slingshots hold no
    ballast in summers
such as these.  Doors
  that access the staging
    areas should be more
shut perhaps a skein
   yes a skein could be
pulled around the building
     wrapped tight
    the skein as fishing out
young men caught and
   drowned for safe
keeping until they grow
    old enough to
   worsen their lives
Letís not fool ourselves
    here: itís hot
       HOT   we wished
for days as this to
    sneak up on us the
  slowly warming coal
      the days we can all
   shed some clothes
and soak up the gaze
     that is finally cast
          our way
