Summer Evening

Summer heat,ID-100413261
sun setting

Dog days,
cool breeze
barley pushing
day’s heat

Familiar sound
getting closer.

Not the melody
of ice cream

A child’s dream
transformed to

Coming down
the street,
speakers blaring
old blue eyes,
a truck filled
with wine
and booze.

Stopping at my
People spilling
from front yards.

Cold drinks,
iced margaritas,
mojitos smelling minty,
aged whisky on the rocks
or neat.

A summer dream,
coming down the street,
memories of ice cream
turned adulthood.
