Endless Nantucket (Free Version)

When I feel the dolphin jumps
That’s when outdoors is good
Capable of making me Strong n' Bustling
Our ideas of lawn games during summer
And I relinquish the fine wind feeling
And how each curve has meaning
A place, to feel unique and like more men,
Indecent and fully capable of choosing a destiny

That dangerous point in Life is Beautiful when you risk
A place like behind the queen on a deck of cards
And when I throw that red lady down
I’m holding the winner
We’re watching the sun from the Best Western
Our Prius rests from the long drive
This is it. I’ve made it more stable.
Even the dolphins are shimmying
Shuddering under the roof’s collapsible tent
Looking for frolic adventure.
The great outdoors with shingles.

Grace happens to work the group least.
I have decided that roofing is out for me.
I will continue to hold you until break time.

How many queens until the entire state is ours?
Grace come back we need your utterances.
That wind carries more than just jam.
That statue looking at me is sexy.
The dryer shouldn’t be in the picture.
Rhythm of this nation, much less this hotel bedroom.

Nice poem.

And nice to run into you the other day. Come this summer, it might happen more often.
