When Summer Comes - Poem by Natasa Tocuc

When summer comes
I will dress in silk blouse and skirt
Wear my new high shoes
Collared with green pearls.
And yellow cotton summer blouse
that sway like the stems of the pin Oak.
In August’s honey-dewed winds
Dark, hot, the time is right
To change dresses.

The pearl one
Slides over my body
Like a silky desire

And when I dance tonight
At his wedding
The hot diamond strobe light

Will dance with me
Like the moonlight across my
Window in slow, white –diamond illuminated

In this season
Of red, red light
When summer comes
