soft serve with dusk jimmies


rather be standing barefoot on soaked concrete

offering a strawberry from betwixt her teeth

she may kiss his smile

while the sun sets behind the skyline

making murals glitter with broken gutter glass treasure

children know

the importance of delicate touch

smooth stones

rain water rivers

the scent of corner store gladiolas

mixed with clove smoke from the hippie girl’s exhales

she wishes for sun showers

fruit and flowers

she has found her treasure

in his delicate touch and the kiss

tasting of strawberries

swedish fish and coca cola

on summer rain soaked lips
