The Garages

nine garages locked to keep
hands out. eighteen doors to shy
away the four wheels of work.

twenty-plus gardens with washing
lines holding last night’s raindrops.
some lawns mowed, others left to.

our tongues drinking the light with
dreams sewn into our clothes.
whacking a ball against wood

and brick. catching summer on
our skin then taking it places
we never knew. riding away

time with our fifteen-gear bikes.
seeing trees grow, that cast shadows
onto our childhood until one day

we looked back and it was gone.
