Dog Days




fevered winds

between each breath.

the clime gone awry

brown haze assaults the air

hard-spent days targeted and chased

flora and fauna galumph and plod

blurred is the wandering eye of the storm

The morning heat had already soaked through the walls, rising up from the floor like a ghost of summers past. ~Erik Tomblin, Riverside Blues, 2005
