barefoot children at play in the park
streets lined with glinting windshields
cars rest beneath the midday sun
the ice cream truck is always out of tune
neatly trimmed hedges and the smell of cut grass
shirtless men jogging, and bikini clad women to stare
when sun sets over cotton fields the land itself seems to glow
as appropriately green trees line a postcard perfect backdrop
“Building an inclusive community”
must be summer in the Emerald City
