Poem: "A Perfect Day"
A $10 roll of quarters, cheap tall cans, and my love. Complex Laundry by the Complex Pool. Lines on my back from plastic lawn chairs, freckles on my shoulders-smell of sunscreen. A pink string bikini with little red strawberries. Your kisses taste like beer and menthol. There's a dryer sheet stuck to your Californian dream. I can see it so clearly through my ray-bans; how did this happen my love? It's the perfect day. ♥
