Scraps of Summer

FREE WRITING

bluegrass playing
we return from the pool
Windows are down and the smell of vietnamese food floats in
My hair smells like chlorine
The sun laps the horizon like a tired dog

Chalk on the sidewalk
Drips of chocolate ice cream on her white shirt
spread out on...

    I step out of my apartment, coffee in hand, and close the door behind me. Then, realizing I had forgotten my purse, I turn around again. And scream. And drop my coffee all over my (new!) white blouse.
    There is. A dead cat. Nailed. To my door.
