Heat Wave


www.theatlantic.com

Slowly, cautiously, sluggishly

Crawling under summer’s sun

Cruising city pavement

Heat rising beneath my feet

Dripping, melting

Wishing a cool breeze comes my way

A spritz of water

A sea breeze to cool my face

Slowly, cautiously, sluggishly

Sweat drips beneath my dress

Skin shimmering misty as a frosty glass

Oh, what I’d give for a tall tumbler

Icy cold, dripping in my hand

Slowly, cautiously, sluggishly

Sauntering freely and uncaring

Into a wall of wetness

Whirling blissfully

Rivulets gushing beneath my feet

Streams bathe me

Washing away the heat
