Less Than Swelter

Yesterday I lost track of everything and ended up not posting an entry and not realizing it until well after midnight. Of course I blame the heat. Today wasn't actually cool but it was less hot than any recent day. In fact it was moderate enough that I was able to go shopping after all. I didn't buy much, being very low on ready cash this late in the month. Fortunately, one store was sold out of an item I really wanted but couldn't afford, so I got a rain check and will be able to buy it when I have money next month.

Even better, it's supposed to drop into the mid-sixties tonight. It's pretty uncomfortable in here right now, but the windows are open and I can feel the cool night air coming in. It won't get really chilly outside until near dawn, and the house probably won't cool off completely until tomorrow night, but I am anticipating th possibility of actually getting some sleep tonight. This heat wave has left me totally exhausted.

This is not a very interesting entry, but it's a wonder I've survived to write anything at all.

Sunday Verse


by H. D.

O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters.

Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air-
fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts
the points of pears
and rounds the grapes.

Cut through the heat-
plow through it
turning it on either side
of your path.
