Summer Mix 2022

Detroit description:

73 degrees on a late June night,

I sit above the street,

On the balcony,

Catching the breeze,

With the fluttering Ukraine flag, 

Above the bricks, 

With my tablet open to YouTube 

Playing Detroit Motown, 

Best of 90s Trance, 

Detroit techno,

Lana Del Rey, 


watching the starry sky 


traffic on John R. 

Some hot cars, 

Northbound to 7 Mile, 

Southbound to 6 Mile, 

This is Motor City baby, 

He says see you around bro,

we fistbump,

He Leaves me to,

Thoughts on far away cityscapes, 

& men that left, 

 I see,

My first firefly of the season,

Glowing in the foreground,

At the same time,

A plane in the background,

Makes its descent across the city...
