Today’s Poets/Storytellers United task is to riff on a tune from a playlist. Summer Breeze by Seals & Crofts isn’t on the list, but I’m including here for your listening pleasure. Hope you dig the poetry, too!
“Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,”
he sang, staggering home after Last Call,
“Blowing through the Jasmine in my mind.”
He’d been singing it all night long at the bar,
singing it all night long at the bar for a week,
and was still singing it here in the unlit alley.
But she was not at the bar, not in the alley.
If she’d been there to hear it she would have
rolled her eyes and shouted “Shut the hell up!”
Jasmine was like that. She hated all her Ex-es.
