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.

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.”
