Comments about Indira Donegan
The Trouble With Running
My biggest fear
(next to machete wielding 8 year-olds)
Is dying of dehydration in my sleep
Before a thorough session in a confessional.
I awaken, stifled and miserable,
Only to rise and see a
Body outlined on my sheets, my own
Sweat vice the traditional chalk.
My living trailer is an Easy-Bake oven
Offering no shelter from the heat.
A literal hot-box minus the normal
Indulgence of the term.
I submit to the Sudanese sun
- tap out -
I am beaten.
The taste of hot water,
