Flowing Like Milk and Honey

Words don't escape me, I let them out silky and smooth like warm honey…

The change in my pocket
hot against my leg
took a week to find
digging in couches,
and dirty laundry
and under the car seat
and in the console
in this August heat
fingertips first finding
chip crumbs
sand from last month’s visit to Panama City
old receipts
and dirty socks
but now
I have change in my pocket
hot against my leg
too hot to sit still so
play outside until sweat
becomes a second skin
then fall on the cool concrete
porch at Grandma’s house
because the big cousins
are sitting in from of the fan
trying to be cute
I am too hot to move
I hear that longed for tune playing in the distance
let them scramble and beg for
their change
between them all just a little to spare
I had change in my pocket
now jiggling in my hand
counting the coins while I wait
for two King Cones.

    homework .
    It makes all of us rule paperwork then documents against different specialists.
