Sunburnt Love by Russell Willis

Eager, but unprotected

from warmth to heat to pain so quickly

temporarily scarred by overexposure

(sometimes not so temporary these scars)

yet soon fading, cooled, darkened

for the rest of the summer

this sunburnt love


Ethicist and online education entrepreneur, Russell Willis, emerged as a poet in 2019. Russell grew up in and around Texas, was vocationally scattered throughout the Southwest and Great Plains for many years, and is now settled in Vermont with his wife, Dawn.
