blazing sun
like the ass-crack of hades... beating down
drowning us in sunlight
til we retreat into the dark recesses
yearning for shade
wondering why we wished for this heat all winter long
in our pajamas
tucked under old quilts
sitting by the fire
which reminds us of this sun
this never-ending sun
and then
just when you were about to give up
the clouds open up
rain coming down
washing away the heat
the grime
the dust of this desert
and we begin anew
