HEAT EXHAUSTION
(7/23/17)

I am
done

I have
nothing
left

after only
a few hours
in the hundred
degree heat

I lie
supine
upon
the couch

buried
in a dark

cool

room

I have
had enough

my energy
level
reads zero

I am
too exhausted
to even
sleep

oh
it was hot
for sure

however
the temperature
outside
is not my
problem

a latter
conversation
in this comfortable
house
was my undoing

talking
to that woman
may dig
my grave
