Blocked Sunshine

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

The skin need not be exposed
to heat and light and radiationing
waves sent by Sol to pucker
the outer layers and infect
the inner layers with too much
sunshine.
.
Come to me dense cream
from a tube to show that sun
I am prepared to walk along treeless
streets unafraid and on guard.
The barrier is stashed in my belt
like a sword, the cap-hilt, handy
for withdrawal every four hours.
.
Rubbed on arms and forehead,
legs and any exposed area,
I feel like a peach covered
in bug repellant, evicting things
that might eat me or bruise my
sun kissed cheeks.
.
Heavily armored, I step out
into the blaring sunshine with my
coat-of-arms, crossed white feathered
quills on a black field, with the words
in Old English declaring the motto
as epigram and epitaph:
"I Am Impenetrable".

402am here

Awake all night, too many carbs - had half a piece of pizza and kaboom! Rain predicte for Sat. Sun. Mon. & Tues. Yard work tomorrow or none for a while. The weeds are calling my name out there, high as the lilies and flowering. The downside of being a gardener of flora. The French marigolds are spreading, promised 16 inches, looks like come Fall they will fill in nicely. Off to bed soon. Good morning ~allet~
