Solaces of Summer
I look up and it's near to half way done, Summer,
my least favourite of season
Except then I realize that is a lie,
as here in the South,
Summer can last until mid/late October,
and I've had Thanksgiving dinners in short sleeves.
Though, I've been busy,
so it's been a bit of a blur,
until the last week or so,
and I began casting about for diversions.....
Spied a poster, remembered a conversation from months' prior,
and tucked into a cinema one warm afternoon last week in NY.
It was ordered on Amazon before I left the joint.
It's wonderfully romantic, the above dance scene to die for.
Car cruising like in high school,
Dialogue like shorthand with a soulmate.
If you have a heart,
a quirky sense of humour,
any romance to your soul,
I recommend it....
I'm quite fond on Dandy's,
don't know enough of them.
I settle for BSL most days
(Business Suit Lust)
though it's hardly rewarded with men these day not knowing their tux from their tails.
on the other hand,
Best forward I've read in awhile by
Treasure hunting is still to be had....
Teacups, and Viola cases, and Spy Glasses and such
corralled in acres upon acres upon acres
somewhere (where was I?) in Massachusetts!
Treasure in my case... a delightful frock,
Larry Aldrich, circa 1968,
sure to rock some autumnal fete.
