One Day Orange - 2023

The security guard 
opens the lock 
for all these 
deceitful cars
to come through
Now what is this
a holiday in the jailhouse?
He's bouncing that ball 
and fedora gives me
a peek
It's a one day summer 
so you are all
being dutiful
under your own code
All this grey 
and this sudden sun
Giving these people 
orange sun kisses
Were these people kissed 
or slapped across the face?
Now everyone's in a rush 
To get this campari served
