SUMMER BREEZE
(6/21/18)

the wind
is not
cool

but at least
the drying
perspiration
gives us some
relief

instead
of the stagnate
sweatbox
of a dead
calm

all in all
conditions
could be
worse

far
worse

we know

but the
salt
in our eyes
tells us
that we suffer
aplenty

we are
lucky

we can
always
say

"fuck it"

retreat
indoors
to air conditioned
comfort

while billions
the world over
must simply
deal
with their
environs

hot

cold

floods

droughts

they have
nowhere else
to go

they
are home

as are
we

all that
any of us
can really
ever know
