Third Dispensation of Summer


And was it radiant?  Were you filled with wild joy?
Are you changed by having seen such a thing,
by having felt it on your skin, by having heard?

by, the sweet
by and by, and by

the taste on your lip, in your mouth filling
for a moment, just a moment really but that 
one moment shedding time like skin?                

First time, last time.  Anytime.  Summertime.
