A Saturday Afternoon In July

We play video games, head to head racing, side by side in the cockpits.

It’s a Saturday Afternoon in July, we’re gone from high school, what now?

The arcade is bright and candy colored, and we’ve spent some time here,

but there’s a world out there, a dream out there, we need to chase it now.

She wins, kisses my cheek, and then it’s on to the next game, a screen adventure.

It’s a day like so many we’ve spent, but we are grown now, almost, almost.

We walk home hand in hand, as evening comes down, a lush and tender pink.

The breeze is gentle, and we might go somewhere else tomorrow, somewhere new.
