Hot Day

po-dog on ice

Hot, Hot Day
So Hot... I feel as if I'm melting
Perspiration rises slowly 
Then rolls off my chin or forehead
I wear my thinnest, loosest attire I have
I drink so much water; I have to pee all the time
How do I stay cool?
Cool is
Under the shade, next to a tree
next to a fridge, next to a fan, under a fan
Anywhere there is air conditioning
The ice cream awaits

About dianatenes

I was born in San Jose/Silicon Valley and raised in the Bay Area. I have been writing poetry since I was a child and recently started to share it. I read some poems at a Poetry meeting for the first time last year. I have co written, produced and directed children's theater in the East Bay. I have self published a guide to eco-friendly, second hand shopping and recycling "90% OFF Every Day! available on Amazon and Kindle. I have worked as an Actress, Make-up Artist for Film/TV and Face Painter, Costume Designer and run a small business selling vintage clothing (pop-ups).
