Drinking Summer

though blanched on Aestas’ pyre
it licks the tongue
this hot sweet peppermint
in my icy mojito

  1. Mmmm…..how I’d love a mojito right about now. I have tons of peppermint growing wildly in my yard.

  2. oh Ms Dubois
    the ash leaves
    as fast as water does
    as ice in the Sun
    broken
    tourniquet
    sweetened
    spoken and
    burned into it
    shaken
    caned and
    tap-crackle and
    explained
    why it tastes
    and feels so good
    to sip
    and slip
    away for a bit
