Hinges of Hell

It’s hot as the hinges of Hell, they say. 
Maybe so, but I’ve never been there.
Yet.
Those hinges must be made 
of very hard stuff not to melt.

Best not to sweat in this heat. 
Water on Hell’s hinges would turn to steam.
and scald us like boiled owls.

But we’re tough old birds too.
We’ll sweat it out and try not to drip on the hinges.

Summer

~The hot summers that make my skin sizzle
With the sun that exposes the melanin under the melanin
Windows down, AC on, an ice cold sweet tea
these are the only weapons available to me
the tools that wage war against the heat
It's only in this battle that I feel alive~

Remember Me

Darkest days

Be my brightest night

When I felt that sun glow touch

Emanate from your soft smile

 

Coldest wind be the

Torture of my skin

While your love seals me in

The violet of the dawning sky

 

The scarlet of the new sunrise

Is all I feel when you’re nearby…

 

Wait no…

This is but a memory…

 

Grab my heart and never let go

Do you remember that ...
