saturday sun

white picket fences

green and blue water guns

laughter without consequences.

muddy sneakers

watercolor paint

bass booming loudspeakers

smiles without restraint.

sunday sun

staying in pajamas

cartoon reruns

life without any drama.

she doesn't tell them

about the divorce,

the drop in income,

her emotions hit her like the trojan horse.

she hides behind

cherries and wine

to have peace of mind

she wants their lives

to be on cloud nine.
