Guess I'll go ahead and post it here too.

The Last Nights of Summer

The whirling neon-pink disc
flits in and out of the shadows
of another suburbian twilight
while far below
the rows of fickle streetlamps
illuminate our return to childhood.
With a sweeping insanity,
the game is played under
care-free skies filled with
the infinite possibilities of more
until we become lost within
the waves of a two-gallon jug of life.
And there we remain afloat,
dancing away our nights
beneath summer's full moons
and tempting the fates of tomorrow
from the sugary straits of tonight
until the nearing dawn arrives
and sends us scurrying
down our separate trails.

TGPB, This should never have disappeared into the lonely pages of passions without a single response, so I return this to the active pages for another viewing.
