packing for college
a pause
to enjoy the backyard pool





books and dice
papers, encroaching on
the friends at the table




the dog is panting in the shade
watching the children
naked in the sprinklers





wiggling caterpillar
in her hands




grilled cheese and chlorine
provided by Poppy
a hot summer's day





parents just don't understand
teen angst is too real
I just want to be alone
