Was the Summer 1967 was the Summer of Love in San Fran. 2020 has been the summer of cucumbers (and coronavirus). So many cucumbers Because we joined a CSA And every week there are at least Four or five in our box--all kinds: English, Common, Kirby. One week they gave us dill too And said, "make pickles!" But we didn't do it--now it's been weeks and weeks, We still haven't done it Even though the cucumber onslaught continues Just like the coronavirus. 2001 was the summer I graduated high school, 2005 college, 2010 PhD. 2011 was the summer I got married. 1997 Bone Thugs-N-Harmony topped the charts with Tha Crossroads And the first boy to ever flirt with me Wrapped his hand around my waist and squeezed So hard his fingertips dented the bubblegum in my pocket. A cucumber wouldn't have been so malleable, But I didn't have too many of those back then.
