The smell of hot concrete rising from the sidewalk
and the tar on the wooden bridge
The sound of trains coming and going
So close that the small house was rattled

It was always summer, there.

Screen doors and a small rotator fan were enough
to keep out the mild heat of June
The train whistles sang me to sleep at night
With their wistful traveling tune

It was always summer, then.

such sharp, clear scent evocations! fantastic! you have a wonderful strength with them--i've always had to fight them tooth and nail to come out of hiding. (so i've been a bit jealous over that!) for me, at least, scent 'imagery' is always strongest, always whipcracks me right down in the piece. well done!

You are just haunted with so many lovely images. You are a dark and winding ghost and I love your poetry. :heart:

Extremely easy to relate to. Has this slight nostalgic after-taste, but still very refreshing to see something so cheerful from you. :)
