hot season

Day 6 Prompt: “Write a poem with a seasonal theme.”

sweating in competition with the glass of iced tea on the table
fan churns a steady stream of hot air
the dog dry heaves against the drywall
water comes boiling out of the cold tap
and even the weeds are dying
hot is too heavy a word to utter

-E.E.
