She Left Summer On Her Wall


My love stood out on her balcony one day
Decided it needn’t look so gray and sad always
Love left awhile, came back
Undressed and kissed me
Before putting on her green pants and her favorite shirt
The one I ruined doing laundry for her once

She went out into the balcony again
Holding bits of rainbow she bought at the art store
In her long, delicate fingers

Thought up sunshine, flowers
Water, fishes and stars
And painted her ideal morning on the wall
That she’d wake in my arms and look outside
And have another reason to smile
Her perfect squinty smile
