two teenagers swap

sips of mountain dew, lives on

the edge of lake house horizons melt

at the moment of dawn, when suns

rise and ants

crawl out from their

giant grass blades.  a mother wanders past the two.

she doesn’t know them, but she has venus

skin, panda spots

on her spandex.  her face swirls, they

pretend that they’ve seen it before.
