She wilts
beneath the steamy
Arkansas sun

She seeks
shade eastward side
dusty trailer
slumps into canvas
sipping lemonade
from sweaty neon green plastic
languid

later

before the fan
naked and damp
drying remnants
of chill spongebath
hoping to cool
enough to sleep

enough to dream
of icecubes
and shivers
