A frayed rope stretches garage to gate. Albeit brief this time of year…
Newly freshened clothes limps the midsection anew…while the gestation of the blowfly magnifies the carrion’s count developing in you
Caustically cantering throughout the heavy haze
Loping about, searching for the shade of tree, to pause, replenish and reflect. To pretend, a breeze caresses moist each sect of throat.
Cracked-earth effusing illusory. Steam billows from cleaved swell, disseminating the delusory—a striating course, distracted only by a rippling boil’s thrift of pace—autonomically evoking predicated pants
Life exists in the open
Yet into the artificial we
Go, ironically…to live
A parched environs. Nuclei’s confound coherence with understanding.
Allowing moments of sweltering sweat, to shackle our worn and fickle flesh. Sheaths of aridity distort the breadth of breath
From pools within, without we’d be…like the dog with splayed tongue, unaware, just how temperamentally distraught a dwindling summer can appear…amidst the confines & cravings of unwavering, humid airs
