Long Island: Oh So Fresh (or, Coming Home Girl)

Returning to Long Island
quickens her tired spirit,
recharges her anemic soul.
She skips flat rocks just
like she was a kid again;
chews a deli ham ‘n Swiss
on a buttered hard roll.

She breathes in the fresh
salty island sea breezes,
buys local produce fresh
from the island farms;
takes mid-day naps on
crisp, fresh-made linens,
dreams fresh dreams of
her old lovers’ charms.

Tho’ people, places, ‘n
things have sadly faded
over all the years; and
tho’ she knows there’s
no truly going back;
this coming home girl
remains forever young,
and local legend claims,
is still fresh in the sack.
