June 12.21: Coping


What count today?

How many swings and swerves?

Is her language getting colorful?

Are we getting on her nerves?

Did you see my body slam?

Mid-forehead, perfect aim!

Well, I got her on her ear —

I love this summer game!

What sport her dodge and dip,

her crazed and darting eyes,

her twitch at our chorale

of razors in the skies.

I’ll race you to her head!

Come on! I double-dare!

The winner is the one

who gets tangled in her hair!

  1. Just so you know, I did smile and chuckle, but then I felt guilty and had great remorse. 🙂 I’m sensing a need for large sunglasses and hat as part of your going out attire. Take care.

  2. Ah, the age old summer battle – well done!

  3. A horror poem! They are exciting to see, but unnerving to hear and I am barely ready to think of them diving in attack or being tangled in anyone’s hair.
