It's almost February, and teenagers are dreaming of the summer,  

at the Lake

 

sailboat boys with sunburned faces and deck shoes 

waitress girls with ponytails and perfect teeth 

 

They'll work all day under cloudless skies, or

out on the blue water 

 

Then, after the tourists have gone to bed they'll get together

drink cheap beer, talk about fast cars and seeing the world 

 

They will feel almost grown up 
hundreds of miles from their suburbs, the pressure of ACT and college loans  


almost February and we are all dreaming of summer 

all of us who remember
