Summer Day

It was another caramel summer day melting all the furniture and dripping from every memory. It was the high noon shadowless roadway sweltering stillness of burning tar and glutinous in scorching injury. There was the sky of permanent porcelain, a cloudless azure ceiling of blistering sun. All retention or anticipation, the spacetime continuum vanished, vanquished by unrelenting summer day.

Hello Thomas A very strong piece on the unrelenting heat of summer. I especially like the word combinations of "caramel summer day." A winner. Best wishes Brian
