LILAC

We   watched   the   seagulls   
The fountain    at  the  boardwalk

You   wore your    hair   up   
Plain   dark   sun glasses    rested

On  your   cheekbones   pale    
Small World    Bookstore     

We  scanned    the   black-   and-white      
Photography       books

And    criticized      the lack      of      
Diversity    in   the      poetry

Section     Another     Autumnal    
Another    Autumnal        Another

Autumnal.
