"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

It's so hot


It's so hot, the mercury is tired of holding up to the top
It's so hot, the crickets stopped singing because they passed out
It's so hot, the crows put on white jackets to reflect the sun
It's so hot, the sunflowers are hanging their heads in shame
It's so hot, the air conditioner burst into flame
It's so hot, we are sitting around in our skin
It's so hot, the devil felt neighborly and just walked in
