for no one – it’s
unclear who is

as the sun tucks
in earlier and

in the evening, you
choose battletech over dinner,
battletech over

just before bedtime,

just before bedtime,
fireworks

on these pages so
that the memories
will keep,
as a reminder
or a suggestion
for future summers

daylight saving starts

daylight saving starts
mostly bite-sized

of dreaming, a handful

more standing
in the shower, a tug-

into bedtime, a
lost appetite

between working
late at the office
and tucking in
way past
bedtime
is the late night

mouthwatering like

the mind’s eye,
treated with
two spoonfuls of
