sweltering

1 May

a sticky, slimy sort of a day it is

sweltering under the elms

somebody said something but

i can’t get up enough strength

to say a single word

sweltering

a heavy day

a sweaty day

a day spent in the shade

where it is still too hot for breathing

sort of day

i’d write a bit more

but i’m melting away

into a smelly puddle
