Summer - Poem by ryan blood

each summer the last summer
the only remembered summer
in retrospect
the one so eagerly
& then so uneventful
like a puritan striptease,
a withered erection,
the kentucky derby:
Each summer the summer
most sacred
Each summer the summer
it did not rain so
much the summer before
because Then is turning
to accommodate Now
with small movements like
the fluttering of birds' wings
& every night the world
the way scientists warned us it would;
what is it about
that is so evanescent?
each summer
the last summer.
