August Song

August Song   


After August songs

Pelicans play on Chesapeake Bay


Still swing swinging with

Finger snappin'

Foot tappin'

Thigh slappin'

Belly laughin'

Keepin' time

Rhythm and rhyme


Solitary driven by offshore winds


Riding the escalator at Macy's 

Once I lost my mother in ZCMI


Like a munchkin on a cattle drive

When something startles the picket

Of hobbled horses 


after August sets

out west the evening

star


sleepwalk...

reflections of

the moon


After August songs

Each verse a little cooler than yesterday
