Peachy Keen

Sticky, juicy, dribbling down my chin-
Laying on the summer grass
Sweat upon my skin-
I picked a good one.

Not to sound crass,
But a plump, round,
Perfectly ripe peach
Is where it’s at.

Epic Fail

My glass is sweating
And so am I
It’s hot as, well
You know,
This 4th of July
Southern summers,
It’s hard to beat the heat
So I’ll sit my bare bottom on this
Frozen seat

Mistakes were made-
Ice is nice in my tea
But a block of ice
To cool down my tail
Is not risk-free
Take it from me
And my cold ass cheeks
Now adhered to this chilly chair,
Not all ideas are created equal
Or good for one’s derriere

Summer of Innocence II

Sticky rivers run down my hand.

Under the summer sun,
Sweet chocolate swirl melts on my tongue.

As the song fades in the distance,
Meet me behind the shed.
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

Summer of Innocence

A playing card in the spokes

Jumping tree roots and ditches
Multicolored streamers and banana seats

The bike makes the girl
You call me names but smile when no one is looking
And you don’t tell your friends you held my hand

Summer Love


Summer Love

summer storms
on lazy days
sunshine like diamonds
on the lake
smell the rain
play with the girl
puppy love

I recall the beauty of you
driving me mad
they were sweet times
a picture of us
still in my head
I like that
