Waking up in June

Two things:

1. I’m on vacation!

2. A poem:


Waking up in June

Hey Koolaid, get your summer on
Morning dew but I don’t
back down.

School’s out
fools out
fun
Watch me swing so high the chain goes slack
squealing on the breathcatch dizzy-down
higher than you.

Sundress,
fundress,
run
Race me to the corner
no—the pool
no—the end of the world
I’ve got all summer to beat you.

Popscicle, bicycle, flycycle
Barefoot and coppertoned, hear my rally call:
I’ve got a pool pass, wanna see it?
Olly olly oxen free!
Jarful of night and firefly
I don’t see no streetlights. I can stay out late ya know
Twenty-five cents buys a fresh box of crayons
Do ya wanna know a secret?
Look inside:

I’ve got a million colors

  1. Great poem! It really says “happy childhood summer holidays” to me, the feeling I used to get for those six lovely weeks off in the summer 🙂

    1. Thank You 🙂 Six weeks off would be great about now!

  2. At 10,000 colors per visit that leaves room for 100 visits. I’m sure that by then some definition of what colors are, and which ones to use would come up.

    1. But still plenty of time to color outside the lines 🙂
