Melting (May 27, 2016)

Every year
It catches us

As if
It's the first time
For this
To happen.

As people rush
To strip down
Their body

In a respectable fashion.

Seeking out
Their favour altar
To roast themselves
In various shades
Of cancerous tan.

In the coolest
And darkest spot
Without A/C.

Their bodies
Give off
A pale bio-luminance glow
With their pasty looks.

Rest of us
Broil away
In the sweltering heat.

To whatever God/dess
For relief.

As the first heatwave
Grips the land
Without any sign
Of easing up
Any time soon.
