Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


summertime is not
without inconveniences:
endless sweatiness.

morning clouds cannot
prevent what’s coming. the sun
will not be denied.

cool mornings quickly
heat into long days. evening
at last brings relief.

afternoon asphalt
soaks up the sun. i pedal,
making my own breeze.

too soon, cold and rain
will return. summertime heat:
i will not complain.
