the first day of
the christmas month,
i’m a continent away
and it’s plus 31 degrees

i drive the rental car today,
swerve to miss potholes,
curse young men on motorcycles,
feel the air conditioner
cold and unnatural
against my face

some are born
to drink and burn
and i have a steady determination
not to prove myself one of them

nighttime sings,
all frog and
excited insect
