JULY

childhood's month

stretched out like a cat or

sunbeam languid, endless

warming the long winter of life

how you would read for hours

in the crook of a gum tree, swim

in a pool's blue till your lips were,

search for stick bugs or katydids

you could hear but never find, slips

like cat and sunbeam into time’s

capricious rush, into August, into

memory
