things i am excited to taste this summer.

freedom.
peach rainbows.
state fair corn.
fresh blackberries.
fresh strawberries.
ice cold lemonade.
vanilla soft-serve ice cream.
cole slaw.
grilled burgers.
grilled chicken.
grilled pineapple.

these winter soups 
& teas
& hot chocolates
have filled me for too long.

give me something freshly grown
 & simple
& good.

give me something that doesn't require
a microwave or defrosting time.

for pete's sake,
give me something i can pick
& wash
& eat
on a blanket in the sun
while i listen to birds chirping
and park-goers laughing.

just give me summer already.

GRILLED. i miss my dad's skillz at the grill. summer is my boyfriend, my man, and my one & only. is it weird that i just called summer my man? this is what winter does to me... it turns my skin pale and my brain to snow-hating mush.
