Summer in the City


With the sarcastic fairy in the air;
Hot time, summer in the city;
The back of my neck dirty and gritty;
Spinsterhood is dispiriting in the town with no flair.

Weekends are long;
News of a budding relationship, stinging;
Keep traipsing along;
Pretending and at times hoping, all will be gone.

imagesOnly the summer breeze makes me feel fine.
