The Best View Ever
There is the dock where Bob the Dog paddleboards.
Up the shore the asshole on his jet ski cuts a figure 8.
Our little bay is clogged with water lilies every July
Inviting my canoe to glide ever-closer for a better look.
The sun sets behind the canopy of pines.
Will it be a better day tomorrow or another day like today?
I am alone on a rock toasting the best view ever.
