Death of Summer

Lazy fat flies
batter their way
through heated, city air.

Re-run sit-coms
and lemonade stands
come to an end.

Children school
while adults
finally get some rest.

Hurricanes start
beating on coasts
and blotting out sunlight.

Longer, thicker shirts
matched with thin scarves
come out to comfort.

Lust turns to love
as pencils are sharpened
for letters and lessons.
