Turn My Head With Talk of Summertime

Collecting strange books once again
forces me to transition mindsets
-School is a good thing. Really.-
And the summer has been so perfect
that my imagination is throwing a tantrum
in the middle of the parking lot
because she doesn’t want
to get in the van and go.
All-out, all the screams and squeals
until some other part of me is afraid
she’ll break my neck
because of all the head-flinging.
The park was fun
and I hope heaven has sunny,
cool evenings naked,
novels-and-movies galore,
walks around the block at dusk.
She’s climbing into the van,
growling and bruised.
Will it move before she’s sat down and buckled up?

About The Original Kate

Along with artistic tendencies, Kate enjoys unusual people and is constantly striving for some sort of nonconformity. Kate offers a perspective that is thoughtful but well-written and full of images within the words. Other tidbits that might intrigue: she has very long auburn hair, and, you guessed it, her favorite color is orange.
