July

by Rob Vitaro, 1999

And I wonder what happened to the 
sunny days of youth when 
ice cream bikes and bubbles reigned 
sprinklers were heavenly 
summer released a charging 
bull 
with horns to pierce the monotonous 
sloth of winter 
and 
   we 
     worried 
            of 
              nothing 
                     but 
                        bedtime

 

This poem won the Flash Fiction Contest (Poetry Category) at the 2013 GLVWG “The Write Stuff” Conference
