June in September

Alex Mascarenhas's picture


It happened one time
One Friday in June
The night was the day
The morning the moon
Stunned, in awe, by chance
Gorgeous, lovely, fun
One, two, trinity
The heat was tonight
Tomorrow, the beach
I look in my eyes
The contract I breach
You’re stung, you’re not dead
And, yet, death is near
Yet dead is alive
Death’s life, feel no fear
When answers are asked
The questions respond
You’re near it, you know
You’re wet in the pond
