it has been so warm here latelyMature

It has been so warm here lately
that all I want to do is sleep -
I peel off the layers of my clothes,
shed them like skin in my wake -
there is not enough water, there
is not enough air, I am suffocating -
my skin is too tight, like clothes a few sizes
too small, but the seams won’t tear apart.

The End
