dry air



the weather played around

went all sultry

pouted   had a good cry   then came


the sun   sultry in a different way   steamy

as in sauna   as in

i can take it if you can   as in


you are less than insignificant   as in

i am hell in carnate

as in   as i suffer so shall you 


then   a shift   comes a zephyr   of a sort   

to take me

from this midwestern doldrum   take me 


somewhere west   west of here   anyway   say

goodland k s   or julesburg c o   

where the air is dry   and a man can breathe   


and a woman can breathe   and a man and a woman

can breathe together   if they're of a mind

Sweeeeet lordy! They sure can. In unison. A wholesome unity. I might even say - resplendent in each others breath.
