College Town Move Out Day

A girl walks by
wearing lime green
fairy wings:
glitter mesh net
stretched over wire.

In her hands,
a blue electric
sweeper,
dorm-sized,
and a basket of
Bath & Body Works
finest products.

A moment’s glance
diverts my gaze
and when it returns,
the Fairy Queen
of Vacuums and
Loofahs is gone.

Her absence is a lullaby,
crooning this town
into summer’s
sticky hibernation.
