Why do I wait...
Why do I wait for the last few days of warmth to winterize
The jet ski, the lawnmower,
The ATV's, the wardrobe. Especially the wardrobe.
I've nearly waited too long...and now it seems like a rushed job.
In the last hours of summer warmth, the trailer bed got a another
coat of linseed oil,
As did the patio swing. I hauled in wood. I coiled up hoses.
Oh Summer, do you have to move south so soon?
The recent rains are washing away all your footprints.
I suppose the Australians are anxiously awaiting your arrival.
