The Season of Imperfect Lovers

by Colin James

In summer we wear
dresses of green plastic,
carry our needs
in a canvass bag
letting it dangle like risk.
Our lover’s concentration
is always drifting
into unreasonable platitudes.
Irregardless of these
nature runs its course.

Colin James has a chapbook of poems just out from Thunderclap Press. He works in Energy Conservation.
