Sylvia Legris - Dog-star on the brain

Barometric saraband: triple-time dance of the thermometer, heat palpitations.

You fumble for meaning in sweat & inevitability; damp sheets, inexhaustible sheep & sleep is a backwards counting of cloven-hoofed creatures & mistakes. (Beguile the night with a litany of un-shuteye woes & weather-done-wrong-bys . . . confess confess confess . . .)

Drought-resignation (litmus-inertia). A spin spin spin cycle of thermal blankets & hot wash without water (every faucette tapped-dry and misspelled out of the picture). A blight on the cursed calendar! A curse on those out-of-this-world dogs!
