August 22nd 2018

Emerging from a Summer
that never seemed able
to pass that over bearing
mix of: too hot, too humid,
too wet, too long, just too …

will we now be teased by
a breeze, a night
cool enough to sleep
false security, maligned teasing
summers cruel little joke

what did I expect
an unreasonable summer of old
foolish I know, just call me a
Pollyanna. In the summer sweat,
hopefully, in the Winter shiver.
