Sunday Morning Apathy

The air is thick 

Moisture heavy laden

Marigolds vivid against

Dun sodden stockade fence


An errant breeze chilled

By passing rains moves

Humid damp to cloy

The canvas porch couch


Sundays paper wilts

Desultorily smudging ink

On bored fingers

Cold coffee bitters the tongue

I can feel it in each word. Cold coffee sucks, I always forget I have made it and have to warm it up in the microwave. You captured the feeling well Joe.

It's much the same in Ramsee (Ramsgate), worm, spordick showers, over coffy cups, the showees dont stick around to turn the coffy cold.
