(not me, but a trio that has my same musical style)
on a sweltering hot day
than having a front row seat
belting out fan karaoke.
“i think there’s something strangely musical about noise.”

(similar to a typical group I saw running into target today)
just a few days to go before christmas
it’s sunny and almost 50 degrees
in the lower peninsula of michigan
the shorts, the sandals, the sunglasses, the smiles
the coats stay behind
close your eyes
feels almost like summer
we are a hardy lot.
“heat is heat.”
my candle quietly answers the question.
“what dreadful hot weather we have!
it keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”
glenn frey the cat not the rocker
is really upset
about the ongoing stretch of excessive heat
and has decided
to vocally protest
i have a different style
and feel that silent protests
might be much more effective.
“that lemon drop is bearing down
so hot it wilts my artificial flowers”

hope springs eternal
as the snow returns once more
i hope for eternal spring
or for even just a month of it.
“in the spring,
i have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”

local scarecrow goes down in the heat
and perhaps looks forward to a cooler season.
“if you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?”
how excited was i
when i discovered
that my local mcdonald’s
chose to give me this special cup?!
what a statement this was
what a compliment
they must have been waiting
for just the right customer to come along
this lid was like a badge of honor
clearly written in two languages
for all the world to see
i carried it with pride
as i went to add my cream
and it was then
that i noticed
that it had come from
a huge sleeve of coffee cup lids
all carrying the exact same message.
in two languages.
“when you’re hot, you’re hot; when you’re not, you’re not.”
