’72

Candle wax and sweet scents

open second story window

Summer of Alice Cooper and Harry

lime in the coconut, schools out

Pop-tarts and Koogle

Cartoons until noon

The first day, then broken glass

bleeding white, the picture fades

seen now in soft light sepia

viewed from this room

where fields beyond are banished
