We sit in the sun,
melting in the heat.
It’s ninety degrees in the shade and
though both have the propensity to sweat a lot,
a lot more than regular people,
we enjoy it anyway.
And we watch the dogs sniff each others butts and
the dragonflies whizz above our heads and
I can think of a better way to spend
a summer afternoon
than with a friend in the backyard
letting the rest of the world
sweat it out.
