So hot its rude

heavy humidity heralds July

cloche-close airless weather

hot house heat plants

hang listless gasping for air

the canal exudes vegetable white scum

fecund slimy fertile spawn

uberous feracious turgid hours when

flesh slithers over sweat drenched skin

slipping sliding slathering on

sultry salt scented bodies

circling slack mouthed sphincters

dopey and dazed in sticky soggy swelter.

Fucking weather
