Today was the dawn of my 61st Spring,
Mustard blossoms filled the air...
I wear a baseball cap outside
So nesting crows can't muss my hair.
Neighbors appear in their shorts and tees,
I still wear shoes in the heat,
My cologne, now mosquito repellant,
Yellow jackets sting my legs and feet.
Friends pack wine and cheeses,
Heading to the beach every chance...
I never eat watermelon in fear
My lips are attacked by ants.
We watched an incredible sunset,
Bombarded by hoards of flying bats...
Serenaded by songs from under the deck
Performed off key by raped feral cats.
