sundress on a swing set

two-dollar sunglasses

& aubergine-painted

fingernails / pabst in

a paper bag pressed into

the concave pile of wood

chips / drags her feet

against the wood chips

stares out at the sun-

drenched park & the

kids on the jungle gym

suddenly thirsty for

lemonade / it’s hot out

& no one knows she’s

here / so she smokes

a cigarette & swings

swings / swings
