EQUINOX ASSAULT
(9/6/16)

September
is finally
here

we are
so close
to autumn

we can see
its peak
from here

but the highs
are still
in the 90s

even
the mornings
are warm

muggy

there seems
no relief

we sweat

we struggle
toward
that tipping
point

yearning
for less
sunlight

anxious to see
the shadows
of the descending
slope

to feel
the cooler breezes
sweeping up
from the valley

but for now
the heat oppresses
our calendrical
climb

we
must muster
our resolve

our sanity

for the
final push
to that
summit

of our
fall
