Sara is Her Summer Love

I utter the unspeakable in order
to definitively convey that aspect of it
yet I do not suffer consequences. We are
bewildered – what to do, where to go from here.

I am nothing but eyes amid the sensation of a swing aloft
in a ceaselessly sunny sky, my shoelaces are green
but I am otherwise awash in primary color, yellow
and red are my glow amid her cooler blue.

Sky as thick or thin as I like it, in doughy gulps
or wispy cold streams.  She could float upon oceans for hours
never to sink through salt water.

She’d swim away out beyond
where I’d imagined
the breakers would be.

I drive real fast
down slippery slope,
hit high point curves,

at crossings
nothing daunted.

In the dead of night
I kill my lights,

I’m an asteroid
on Highway 1.

Dark wind
whips through,
dashboard glow –

rockabilly twang
on the radio.
