Summer

Does a city
rise a bit
to make a bonus gift
of dusty light?
What does it matter?
An apartment full of heat.
A panic attack
dressed like Paul Newman in Hud.
When someone snaps gum
do you snap back?
Mastication communication.
Maybe no one is looking
at you. Maybe the snapper rises.
Rose cuffs and frankincense.
An audible design
of fractures and meadows.
You don't go away for the summer.
You ride the subway all summer.
