A DRY HEAT
(7/1/18)

we look
for comfort
in our moments
of minor
suffering

even
sarcastically
so

any
mitigating factors
that rationally
improve
our situations
are welcomed

but still
we feel
as if we're in
a pit
of shit

wondering
why life
has to be
so difficult

instead
of grasping
gratitude
for just
being
alive

a miracle
lost
in sweat

we continue
to complain
of the sun
