52 Days of Summer

I tried connecting to the wi-fi in my house today, but the only available network was the security-enabled Sovereign network. A sign from God?

Anywho, here’s a poem for Day 1 of Summer (and Day 1 on the temporary full-time job at the retirement center):


They’re going
to say we’re crazy, Lillian says between breaths.
She stands at her open window.
Her air-conditioner turns on; her oxygen tank hisses and rattles.
What? I ask.
The little green men.
Who? I ask.
She turns and smiles.
When they come down from above,
They’re going to tell us
we’re crazy.
