Views of summer

1
Summer unfurls like wandering cotton seeds
The stagnant loitering of sunk leaves
In the drowsy aftermath of a distant clatter
The zeal of sun escapes you
As shadows run through closed doors
Caustic paints crack on the walls
The last drops of will evaporate
The city now runs with inertia
voices bend and move past you
towards a shimmering oblivion ...
2
In front of a hardware store
A pile of sparkling PVC pipes
Blue as the sky
As if the only ones alive
