SIMMER IN THE CITY

THE DAILY POST: SEASONAL SCENTS

S’mores, salty breezes, veggie burgers on the grill, sweaty people on the bus–what’s the smell that you associate the most with summer?

Bubbling road tar
Frizzy hair–not pretty
Dusty roads
Allergy sneezes
Smeared, sun tan lotion
Broken sunglasses
Family buggies
Full of beach sand
Poison ivy, itchy
Insect bites
Persistent weeds
Newly mowed grass
Afternoon thunder
Drowned out picnics
Wind blown, sun bleached
Summer vacation, without pity
Still better, than
Simmer in the city
