I, Too, Know Why A Caged Bird Sings

July
gets hot

deep in the south

where water moc
casin

and cotton
mouth

slink pink
lemonade

in white tees
& shorts

pushing
a trade

when not in a court

my god!
all the fortunes

they all
must have made

sharks?
not sharks

no need
in the south

for water moc
casins

and cotton
mouths.
