Like the summers of Grandma Days

Remember the summers of Grandma

days when you were small

and I was small and this was before our worlds

got busy

and the summers shrank

into hours between work and

sleep?

With a can of soda or a

bottle of beer

the time it takes to satisfy the thirst-

and it’s already over.

Still waiting for the baseball

game to begin

in the backyard

lawn mowed down to mark

the field and grandma’s

kids were happy then.
