A brief piece inspired by a random post of mine made during the recent and equally (and thankfully) brief heatwave.

Available in Cable-Knit Sweater, a poetry collection available on Wattpad.

I often worry death
is this dark, smothering thing.
Feeling your way through
dense, physical warmth.
A cool pocket of air waiting
at an end that never comes.

It’s warm tonight.

#Heatwave. Steve Arviso. 2018.
