Heat
2013-09-06

It is hard to keep these double-edged words sheathed,
With my hand on the hilt and blood
drowning out sound in my ears.

It is hard to keep my eyes focused above the horizon,
Against the sun’s bright glare.

Tomorrow may be cloudy and cool
but today the heat stings upward from a glaring pavement.
