All summer long,

we’re waited for this late autumn azure,

A tub that isn’t quite large enough

contortion is sexy, no?

listening to Sonic cartoon through the locked door.


One more day

and your mother shows up,

jeans, white bra and pink panties on the stairs,

how quick we climb!

a backbeat of hurry, faster!

bathos back breaking exercises

but smiling coming down stairs,
