Routine and confusion

municipal pool

water cooler blue
screams, squeals, yells, and mothers’ fears

kids play, make no mind
of moms, lifeguards, sun or wind
only rain, thunder, lightning

bedtime bound

sunny day of play
kids home now, complaining begins

so much childhood suffering
movies in the basement dark
without popcorn, pop, and chips


smell of summer grass
dust, burned brown, rock and dry ground

dog days linger, move
cicada loud, through the heat
turning into winter dreams
