Poet
I wrote this haiku after a hazy, humid Syracuse night. My wife and I were feeling stuffy and claustrophobic, so we threw some beach towels into the car and drove downtown. We werenít the only one who had the idea to jump in the fountain on that night. Whole families were out together, laughing and splashing. Kids were riding their bikes through the water, kicking up sheets of water on the other revelers.

I loved standing where the water came up, feeling it higher and higher on my back, cooling me off. It was one of the most romantic nights of our then brand-new marriage, and Iím excited to have a poster of it!

Clinton Square fountain
soaks me intermittently.
You carry my shoes.
