A shroud of unbearable heat envelops my city. Outside my cool retreat the days flow in listless slow motion.

 

This heat
assaults me
like the uninvited
embrace
of a stranger,
his stale breath
pressed
against my cheeks

straddles
my limbs
and stifles
my soul.
Languid  thoughts
drowse
on cushions
Of distant snow angels.
