summer's preludes

A woman’s arm
Sticking out of a car window
Elbow, hand, and fingers fully visible
It’s as much summer
As the outstretched arm of a teenager
Zits barely visible through the glare and pictures of a thousand and one frozen treats
Holding out a waffle cone filled with blue moon or rocky Road
Or the unopened flower of a lily
Any lily
Best appreciated
Completely unadorned
No cigarettes
No Faces
No futures
Just skin
Sheet metal
And wind
