Endless Summers

Endless Summers

“I write this as a recollection and as a parting shot because this is my first summer working as a professional. So this year, and probably for the years to come, I won’t be returning to my province to spend the summer. This is my way of committing to memory the games that I played and how I will finally cease to play them come summer’s end. But I will still observe similar potholes, albeit this time in asphalt or concrete, being dried by the sun in another place. Then next year, when puddles begin to dry and the breezes scorch, I will yearn again for my childhood summers.”
