summer kites champagne raccoons

red and blue circles
intertwining kite tails
circle each other

pirate voyage plane
too much action in the sky
flying above kite

parasailers float
“hot blooded check it and see”
playing hotel left

twin banana boats
do not stand between the signs
exit or enter

you are too cruel
if you play ” don’t be cruel”
again carolina girl

hot donna summer left
right side “don’t be cruel”
yesterday’s choices

donna summer wins
we “celebrated the times”
didn’t “back it up”

champagne five raccoons
will not celebrate on my
roof top anymore

nor hurricanes
entering through the baseball diamond
cutout in roof

bright green bobblehead
lizard bobbing head three times
every step he takes

chase your peanut butter
crackers with pretzel rod
nice hawaiian punch

Blue Jay

standing top pool shed
bossing me around
i don’t know what you’re saying


*
(lizard’s first appearance
since he was a baby
dancing poet mate

knowing three lizards
they’re all different colors
so we don’t get confused)

das segelnboot 4-5 after the drizzle

days like a snowflake
no two exactly alike
walk on rocking beach

five circular girls
solo cups on the sand
hand stands taking turns

wind blows boat across sea
extremely fast sailing
appears targeted

they are coming back
handstand bikinis sitting
in surf with their cups

some guy pacing
appearing to have beautiful
symphony in head

man lying in surf
don’t get too close he has spider
tattoo fingers

resembling this con
on tv one for each
person he murdered

no fear he seems
harmless enough playing with two
sons in the water

you cannot get lost
you will see banana boat’s
white hair and eden

.

Ringo Dachshund not Starr pulls pork

tuesday night pulled pork
thurdsday nights gourmet pizza
the kosher left side

two fifty a slice
every friday taco night
fish fry wednesday nights

saturday night grill
footlong hotdogs four dollars
burgers and cookout

animal crackers
they’re loaded with calcium
i like the sugar


here we go again
while you’re thinking are they twins
one has blue with black

other hat black with blue
man says no they’re cousins
answering someone

who apparently asked
what i was thinking
synchronistic thoughts

chattanooga choo choo
wearing clemson t shirt
goes to all the games

grew up in greenville
thirty minutes from clemson
explaining it all

“oh dad i remember
where my cigarettes are
in your pants pocket”

haiku on boardwalk
wasted on bad cigarettes
keep it in your pants

ringo’s father asks
“are you back for the summer”
haven’t ever left

6/4 pm

Pink summer

twenty cheerleaders
hot pink bikini circles
d j plays for me

party on rooftop
forgetting it was friday
changing days around

never have you seen
so many hot pink bikinis
in one blue pool

cheerleaders remind
family guy’s peter griffin
water ballet

in another life
i was a gefilte fish
pike whitefish and carp

how very polite
extremely wrong “you don’t mind
if i smoke do you”

why would i mind
came outside to cough sawdust
plaster and mold away

why would you pick me
entire reason i’m here
is for clean sea air

three mormon women
ottie and annie also
join me for cocktails

mine was water
they were discussing shots
but probably were joking

world war two movies
writing book about the war
ask if i’m mormon

“my bitter friend is”
so i know you couldn’t be
drinking alcohol

if you have your health
nothing more to want than
sky saxophone floating

most beautiful pool
two three dimensional kites
saxophone plays jazz

warm “bathwater” calms
cool wind blows everywhere
you don’t want to get out

people are shouting
at me like they usually do
not in haiku

“your favorite color
is purple isn’t it”
man on white sidewalk

laugh and shake head yes
even though you were thinking
blue after he left

purple wrist key
noodle top sandals was his
logical reasoning

silly raccoon
sleeping in Y hears toes grass
goes down inside tree trunk

lifeguard flip flops

everything funny
begins and ends at walmart
this may be the end

walmart for people
with very large shoes to fill
elevens only

flipping in the sand
one year four sizes too big
stolen one hour

twenty dollar flip
not three dollar walmart pair
did you lose something

yes lost my temper
you look like you lost something
very observant

a pair of lifeguards
deducing thoughts in your head
WAVElength frequency

Next Day

“find stolen shoes
next time leave at life guard stand”
WERE TWO FEET BEHIND you

“we don’t look behind us”
you watch people’s shoes?
“well no not really”

“but who is going
to steal from the lifeguard stand”
a sociopath ?

dog days of summer

summertime fish jumping
they are high on cotton
cotton’s high in field

yankees to the shore
southerners flee to beaches
where the air is clean

pesticides in pond
four eyes fish trying to escape
smoke from haystack

dogs jump in car
bringing only towel and bone
forgetting sunscreen

hound chow their puppy
barking at every mail truck
passing subaru

eventually arriving
Lee’s Inlet Kitchen
hush puppy dinner

Wing’s Duncan shopping
shelling out shells for sunscreen
walk along beach

first stop salt water
pond where mullet jump for joy
chasing duck warm up

frisbee on warm sand
cooling off sea, shaking dry
barking at seagulls

back to their condo
egg salad sandwich lunch
peanut butter bones

dreaming of dinner
along the way to the beach
barking at mailman

beer steamed hot dogs Lums
one time owner Caesar’s Palace
sixty million

dining Lums a dream
nebraska massachesetts
only two exist

hitching Drunken Jack’s
hush puppies honey butter
vegan sole filet

strawberry daiquiri
watch fishing boats through window
coquille st jacques

dear weather channel

i love that you state three reasons you do not have email.

here’s a fourth : people would complain about how you are always wrong .

that wasn’t my reason . i wanted to ask you to please stop with the overwhelming tragic pictures . what’s wrong with you. who wants to see this. you can only fit 6 hours of tempertatures on the page , beacause there are a million
heartbreaking ads , you cannot help but see. i’m going to find weather somewhere else. start my own weather station.

i could guess better. how can you be 8 degrees off.there isn’t one day where ,you are right. you cannot even agree with yourself, the tv version of you – the weather channel.have you ever heard of a meteorologist? if my brother -in-law , who is one and a CPA wasn’t retired , i would ask him to please let’s start our own channel. he won an award , as a meteorologist , in georgia.

this is typical. you say the high would be 63
at 2 pm, then on your 10 day forecast at 4 pm , it says the high today was 71 at 1:21. you know you do this.
almost everyday ,like yesterday you said the high would be 69 & only for 2 hours, but it was 71 before even reaching the high.

what i really don’t understand is why the tv gives florence temperatures mainly ,which is 1 & 1/2 hours away.
is that a big tourist area? it takes 5 minutes for you to show the wrong temperature here for 4 seconds..i’m not exaggerating.are you afraid someone in myrtle beach may see the wrong temperatures you show?

i also love when you say it will not rain until 4 pm..0% chance & at 2:20 pm a cement trash can blows across the landing
and tries to knock me down, because the rain is coming in from 4 sides. there’s 2 inches of water on the cement at the pool. you have to hide ,with 6 people , inside the beach umbrella lockers, also in 2 inches of water blowing inside. you can’t close the door because you have bronchitis.

bikini or coat
how do we know what to wear
eight degree difference

a few months ago
warm on the balcony
