Summer Days

I don’t have any stories to tell
in the summer,
when the ocean swells up
and the weather is
soft and slow and cozy.
I feel well
in these summer days,
and I just want to have a drink
with the sun
and be quiet for a while.


DEAD RED FISH
novel now on Amazon

Published by lou rasmus

Lou Rasmus is an independent author from Chicago, IL. His works are largely focused on exploring the meaning of life – or lack thereof – while the themes of love, relationships, and self-loathing are also central to many of his stories. His upcoming novel, Primrose Isle, will be his third self-published title. Grapefruit Juice, a collection of bitter poems and short stories, and DEAD RED FISH, his semi-autobiographical debut novel about a young man coming to age on a road trip with his childhood friends, are also available on Amazon.

  1. Summer should be
    Full
    The grill’s stench in
    Stifling heat
    The girl’s Sweaty
    Embrace
    Cherry Limeade
    Iced
    Lemon Water
    Weenie roasts
    Sexist Party Band
    Music
    And that white
    Hot
    Blaze of eye blistering
    Sky
    Sun’s glimpse of
    Eternity
    Between hot sand
    and sky
