The ceiling fan turns
seemingly without purpose,
sending a slight ripple of
shivers into the still air.

The porch isn't any cooler.
Tears of sweat make their way down
a slender glass of iced tea,
drinking up smaller beads,
becoming a rivulet as gravity brings
it more quickly into the pool
around the bottom of the glass.

A rivulet of sweat
makes its way down her chest
sending a tickle
as it finds its way between her breasts.

A sip of tea
cools her throat as it
makes its way down to
cool the soul of summer.

    You hit this one of the park...Way out...forgive the extension of summer refernces...I love how minimal and bare-boned, and somehow intoxicatingly erotic this piece is. A gem!

    If I had my druthers, I would enter this one, it has more of that hot lazy summer feel to it. But that's just me. I like them both a lot. Love you Momma!
