Seasonal Mayhem

Extreme weather brings on extreme behaviour


Across George Square bare

skin sizzling: not drowning

in high factors.


Here, summer lands

like a sledgehammer.



Drop everything, Glaswegians

desperately seeking brown

burn red.


Hospitals prepare

people swear – Never again.

How many degrees?


Blisters glisten

skin dries and peels

to squeals of pain.


Bra-less and free

goose-bumps, fever

just in time for autumn.


The End
