Feverish (Day 572)


sere inland desert   
feverish depths of
moisture   condensing
at the accustomed hour
melting   patiently 
unravelling meandering 
mysteries in the wavering
violet of old-house windows  
hear: cicadas  crickets 
firing up   butterflies 
somersaulting  settling 
like eider-down 
on the heavy red aura
of an oddly-empty street
