Sipping

sangria in

the sunshine

The shrill of a

seashell played by a

Japanese man

A white bandana wrapped

around his

jet-black hair

The Kokyo Taiko drums

pound in the background

Their rhythm

climbs into my heart

beats into my bloodstream

 

My son and husband

are entranced with the

symmetry of sound

these

foreign drums make

Only I can hear the

faint trill of the

train as it rushes by

The hiss

of the helium balloons

behind me

 

And all I can think of is

 

Summer in the city

is almost gone.
