Analysis of Lazy Days, Of August...



Giggling the sun
playing peek a boo
through tne clouds...
And whirl the breeze
through the grass...
Laughing at it all.
While a crow flying over head
Brashenly calls
Love! Love! Love!
and we sit in tee pee'd
Lawn chairs, watching it all
Like the Old man, across the way...
in stuttered thought poses
photographed in each
in the flashes of sun.
