i know the fevers well.
the burning entities on the surface of your skin the red hot
deserts that harbor abrasive sand and the sand only absorbs the heat
that’s passed around from the sun to the surface of the earth and we are just
unburdening the sun of its heavy hot emotion
i know the feelings well
the need to alleviate you of all of the harsh
rays the need to comfort you soothe you send you home
happy and whole and honest the liveliness of a simple temperature
keeping us all safe from the heat please close the window, i’m not paying
to air condition the world.
