so damn hot
for early June
so let’s get
away from
concrete &
steel because
there’s only so
much humanity
I can stand
in summer
& the trains &
trams & buses
are filled with
the great unwashed
& that is not to shame
anyone but only
to say work
should not rule
our lives but be
subservient to
our mental space
which is probably
too didactic for
a poem like this
but screw it &
if that pisses you
off write your
own damn poem
