Vacation High

Palm trees carrying jagged edges of shadow over reclining chairs in the sand

Rum graced coconut shell

The smile tinged with sunscreen and white teeth

The children’s college fund lies in the pocket of the resort

Every tan line is intentional

Heads turn left and right at proudly bared countless hours at the gym

The floating bar in the pool has your favorite beer on tap

You will dream wistfully of this afternoon for a lifetime

Your cubicle and Sedan will never compare

It is important to remember the meaning of the “vacation high”                      

If you lived here you would frown as often
