pt 2 of quaternion

sweltering
     the unpaved streets
intolerably stifling
everyone
       seeking cool air
sitting
    enjoying the resite
from
   the unusual heat
the past
       called to mind
         the inconvenience
         the fear
                to venture out
any capricious 
           movement 
                stifled
sucking breath
        and perspiration
               in torrents
tottering about
        clothes fluttering
homewards making
under  a clear sky
completing responsibilities
in the dry
           desolate
              landscape
till
    it runs with rain
no one lives
            in the house
abandoned
        to seek the shade
until
      the late evening
                            hours
this season
      of long days
            humid  nights
the advanced in age
apt
    to fall asleep
with
reflections
     of an idle hour
