Raspberry Ripened

Summer ripens
on the vine
like hot pavement
melts some
thoughtless kid’s
blue Bubblicious
you thankfully
noticed and side
stepped missed
as you wear
those sun-kissed
shoulders
like you wear
your hair;
as if you’ve just
spent a day
at the beach with
cold beer
and your feet
pushed deep
in the sand,
till the tide
comes in and
storms the castle,
but you don’t care,
for all time is
but only sand,
where you’ll
willingly stretch
to reach that one
raspberry ripened,
and you’ll even endure
the scratch.
