Heatwave. - Poem by john o'connell


dust whirling,
after mobile departures,
in the decadence
of our multiplying crows-feet.

the sweat of humidity
dropping on neutrally carpeted floors.

beer lubricating
many a rusty throat
as human optimism
and pessimism
make friends with each other
in a warlike fashion.
