Hula Hoop Paradiso

by Steven J. Serafiani

Hula hoop paradiso is
on its way. Firework

benevolence parachuting
colors over a heat that
goes into the night deep. Porch

swing coolers clink with
bare feet tapping to
a cicada serenade. Compassion

rises with fahrenheit- tundra
penumbra now a trampoline
other era. Ice

cream parlor trips we
become teenager traipse in
held hand trace. Lay

in the blades under
twinkle tooth canopy. Feel

everything in between as
life becomes a lover again.
