Painted Summer

Painted Summer

Cabana
Blue. The color of
the ping-pong
table at
the summer club swimming pool
In your swimsuit play

a couple
of pick-up games with
some people
you just met
Suntan lotion and chlorine
perfume you all and

the sunburn
will show up tonight
The white ball
hops flies hops
spans the table tap-dancing
Cabana Blue steps
