August Flight

Leave a comment

Surfing asphalt

Taxi cabs grab fares

City parks slumber

A lone dog grins

Heading out at last

Takes a playful bite

An oversized kid

On a bike too small

Speeds past toddlers

Trundling to daycare

Rumbling dumpster

Shakes dust down

On three derelicts

Lost souls asleep

Under the Academy bridge

Runners keep pace

Limbs stretched to the limit

Cyclists spin and spin

A wild-haired girl races

Leaping in orange shoes

Reflected in Art City windows

A girl in Christmas colours

Sips a frosty ice latté

Slurpy summer heat

Records late hours of August

Somewhere near Boon Café

Sultry days simmer

And consider flying south
