Rusty nails, dried paint, dust
Cooking and preparing
Readying clothes for the next day
Telephones, faxes, meetings
More nails, wet paint
Heat, humidity, Summer rain
Day after day
Week after week,
And another month has passed.
My sole salvation is that the Southern Hemisphere is nearing the (hopefully abrupt) end of these thirst-inducing, life-sapping, skin-scorching summer days, irritatingly interspersed with the ooze of sticky rain forcing us to inhale its heavy, clammy, steamy air...
Cool, southerly Autumn breeze, I patiently await you.
