The Mag - 22 June 2014 -Silly How Some Things Flow.

"Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly." Pablo Neruda

Sweet Summer 1912 John William Waterhouse

There always is, two sides, to every story.


Just What is Summer all about Alfie?

She Said and He Replied

(Note- We can see her, but he's just outside of the painting.  Truly.)

She begins, 
Barefoot I lounge 
upon this lazy leisure day.

Won't you stay
and join me 
under this sweltering sun?

He relies,
One half of me- 
is trying to fix this mower
But the other half of me 
craves a cold beer.

She says,
Can you see I'm half shading my sinfulness
while the other side of me is exposing
a blistering, burning rage growing inside of me?

He replies,
Stupid mower!
And what is that sticky 
taste of something salty 
on this beer can?  What's that about?

She says,
Ah yes,
I too taste a sticky 
presence of salty 
tears with your absence
as I quiver here in sizzling desire 
all by myself.  Again.

He replies,
Doesn't matter, dumb dead mower.  I quit.  After this beer 
let's go golfing, then steaks on the grill. 
So grab your clubs.

She says, What more can a girl say
upon this sun-sational day 
I'll just dream-
About the sticky sultry 
touch I believed you'd bestow.
You win.
Let's go chase some balls.
