Fierce: An overrated Affair

Rainy eveningYesterday, clouds spilled over
Flashing bright streaks
Split the sky
Opening up to pour down
Animal rain.

Today promises the same.
Fall, truncated days,
Apples, crisp harvest,
Seeps in.

Everyone loves summer.
For adults,
An overrated affair.

Weeks begin and end with
Blonde sunshine
Smiling hotly
Morphing light speed into
Relentless exclamations.
Attention diva
Marking consecutive days
An unwanted dominance.

Hours spent outside working.
Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
Still burning.
Sweating it out at
Some overdrawn festival.

Standing upon concrete
A baking so fierce
Rubber sneaker bottoms
Begin to soften and stick.
Proceed anyway.

Seasonal gluttony
Sticker shock aftermath
