A Warm Summer Common Cold

Reverberating adoration,
pumps often about his head.
He profusely ponders,
all the pleasant statements spread.
Happiness is just
green apples on the stairs.
Refreshing, sour-
cutting thin the summer air.
Sometimes they’d plan
pretty picnics together.
Never caring, Never
checking for the better weather.

Reverberating adoration,
pumps often about his head.
He recalls the childhood friendships,
that crumbled as the bread.
Soon, even, these friendships
will end.
As did the sofa cushion wars,
So, will late hour coffee conversations
wax thin.

Pleasant words and pretty faces,
and his bubbling friends;
And the incessant reverberating adoration,
will all, someday, come to an end.
