if you ask me flat out I will always say
that the summer is my favorite time of the year.
but my god, it’s too hot here already!
my days are dictated not by how I feel and what I desire
rather: whether I can last more than five minutes outside.
and DJ, oh how he loves being outdoors!
(how he cries when it’s time to come inside)
earlier this afternoon we took a walk, the three of us, down the street
and dom told me that his cousin was right,
that vegas should be covered with some sort of solar blanket
and damn it if that’s not the smartest thing I’ve ever heard
but after this walk I was feeling so sluggish and sweaty
that i’ve been indoors ever since.
i sent dom out to pick up a carton of eggs
and some french bread that I intend to eat
slathered in oil and vinegar while
standing up in front of the cutting board.
easy dinners are my favorite,
i know dom won’t disagree.
though not official, summer has crept into town
and all the watermelon and peach iced tea in the world
won’t be enough to cool me down.
i guess i really shouldn’t complain
everyone has issues with where they live, right?
happy tuesday night, all.
