In August, a poem can be a predawn swim, the sun rising…

Summer wanes, but there’s time for a few more games of Marco Polo. Your brown shoulders, slick with coconut lotion, meet the bright smell of chlorine as you move about the pool.

In August, a poem can be cool like Charlie Parker…

Not on the beach? No biggie. Sip ice coffee and let the Bird tell you about Summertime.

In August, a poem is the green scent of cut grass…

Get swingy in a hammock, let your left toes tickle the lawn. Everything around you is a poem.

In August, a poem can be an international flight of fancy

Packing for adventure? Tuck a slim volume of Rod McKuen in your carry on. No travel plans? Let poetry take you away. Find a bar decked in California plush and spend an afternoon in the cool dark tippling something dashed with bitters. Read poems to the bartender- and maybe pen some lines of your own.

In August, a poem can be the thrill of Saratoga with $20 on McRobber to win in the 5th

Don your best seersucker suit. Tilt that big sun hat to shade your eyes. Scream for your favorite to go! Go! Wave your winning ticket wildly in one hand, a book of poems in the other.

In August, a poem can be a rodeo queen in an air conditioned Sky Dome…

You don’t have to travel to see interesting sights; a postcard can bring them to you. Hey, the poem’s a bonus.
