Burning Palm Trees

Scorching heat

Melting 99 cent plastic flip-flops

Burning Ray Ban shades

Smoking skimpy bikinis

Fiery white-bleached sand with salty waters

 

Where have all of the beach balls gone?

 

Popped and clogging up my raw throat, like dry pollution

 

Where has summer gone?

 

The beaches have run dry with drowned sandcastles

The parks have screamed brown and the crinkly yellow of stained teeth

 

The movies have whined with unfinished credits and blue screens of breathing scripts

 

The carnivals have quited with run-down ferris wheels and blood-stained rust on loose screws

 

The summer days are over

 

Swimming tic-tacs

Floating change

Drowning sunflowers

With a hint of burning palm tress for a little spice
