Midsummer air perfumed
With fat and sugar

Sticky sweet
Midway glowing, bells ringing
Win a prize,
Three tries only three tickets!
Screams from the Tilt-a-Whirl
Faster, faster
Groups of boys jostling, shuffling feet
Girls whisper
Do you think he’s cute?
Top of the Ferris wheel
Squinting in the evening sun
Holding hands
Weekend rockers onstage
Plastic cups and pitchers
Under beer garden tent
Moms in flip flops, dads in baseball caps
Whirling dervish children, fueled by cotton candy
Funnel cakes, corn dogs
Fresh lemonade
Shaken, not stirred
Sundaes with my sweetie
Long shadows biking home
