Last summer was a blur, half-watched TV and naps,
waiting for the increased dose of Lexapro to kick in.
Michigan in June, monsoon season, I guess.
Ankle-deep in water every time I stepped outside.
Late-night walks with my dogs in July,
cooling breeze across my face as we ran away from skunks.
My friend’s birthday in August, sat on the patio til dusk.
Homemade birthday cake and twinkling white lights.
Someone always has to start talking about home improvement.
