Keeping Up with the Phoneses

It's always Sunday

in the squares


Sunny and swell

as lemonade in July

with the peel

just


floating


on


top


Careless on the surface

as a teenage girl

on an air mattress

shaped like a slice

of watermelon

Posed precariously

like a pretty sprig of

thyme before it's tossed

aside at the start of the meal

Contrived obviously

Yet, on the shore,

we kneel

and paint our lawns

in another

another coat

of green
