simple truths

harmonicas & party horns
little grins meeting mine
acolytes with candled cake
sunburn racing mosquitoes
as nailbeds fill with dirt
petunia impatiens marigold
you & you & especially you
climbing clinging wishing

like firey new nasturtium
loving roots in sandy bed
all in a glorious may day
dulled by the dark knowing
of being wasted.
