Florida Heat by Marc J. Yacht

Florida Heat

Marc J. Yacht



October and in the 90s’

Not the way it should be

Need some shade and water

The heat will be the death of me.


The air is thick as molasses

The humidity sticks to the skin

No rain to bring relief

I better stay in again.


The sun feels like a furnace

Seems the days afire

Trees and shrubs are silent

 And asphalt sears the feet.


Is it Global warming?

Will November give respite?

Can we expect cooler weather?

I’ll keep my air conditioner on high!
