'Summer with a scent of peppermint'

Summer with a scent of peppermint

Is a cliché

Shedded cherry tears cover the remains of asphalt

under the multitude of lonely feet


And sweat

And silence

A street-car’s whisper in the distance

Calls for escape

From the indifference

Summer drowned in a cigarette smoke

Is poetry
