Elizabeth Swados

(1951 / New York / United States)

Summer

Tsss
Summer sounds,
Tsss
Concrete and heat,
Sneakered feet on tar,
Stepping on a melted candy bar,
Squish
Crunch, crunch
Gravel on the street,
Woosh
Hydrant waterfall,
Zzzzt
The sun's an orange basketball,
Bonk bonk
Summer sounds,
And then the
Summer's gone.
