Fry an egg on the sidewalk
Burn your feet in the sand
The waves are massive, the arms get tan.
Watermelon is mealy; sorry, I don’t like it
Nor the cake made into a flag
Just give me strawberries and vanilla.
Ants all over the picnic
And food poisoning in the sun-hot salad
Honey, there’s sand all over your hand.
A float dressed up like the Statue of Liberty
Horses leave their droppings
As they follow the marching band.
There’s the car, open the trunk.
Carry a blanket to the park.
The fireworks go off at dark.
Hotel pool is an all-day event.
Walk to the snack bar.
Someone there to fall in love with, so
Tonight, wish on a star.
