016GM16H umbrella is not enough


beach umbrellas are beach mushrooms
they come in so many beautiful colors
at 90's it's nice to have above your head
anchor it very good so it won't fly away
i know you don't like chasing over bodies
you might stumble and get painful bruises

we bunch up under this canopy after a swim
then we chat endlessly and drink lots of fluids
i'm squinting, above the sand is heat waves
i can roll dried salt from my skin; taste different
maybe it mixed with my sweat or lotion scent
i still have cold wrinkles; bluing lips; paling skin

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
