Sweet Summer Poetry: 'Ignorance'

These are days we dream about when the sunlight paints us gold.

Sweet Summer Poetry: 'Ignorance'

I don't know what poetry is
like I don't know what skies
or seas or stars are
I don't know why you chose to match
teal summer shorts with flip-flops
I only know your brunette-blonde hair
blowing comfortably in the wind
Like a free spirit guiding me with
maps of freckles on your seashell skin

Your paisley ties, my fishtail braids
unraveled against the mahogany boards
The ocean washed away our worries;
purged pedantic heartache towards
illusory islands of innocence.
