We wear summer in our hair;
chlorine and high humidity.

I'd like to be stuck between
your buttons and your seam,
clinging to your floral dress
at the center of your chest.

You said you'd never leave those frames behind.
They look good and they block out the sunshine.
Then you left them on the west-side between
dinner and the bus ride
waiting for someone else to find.

I hope they wear them all the time.

We sit in an ATM vestibule,
let our blood cool.
There's sand in the sheets brought from the beach
carried on our feet.

So when our skin turns pink again,
I'll stop and buy some SPF.
"We'll get sick at our own expense
from drinking red out of boxes,"

you said.
