Heat you don’t want to beat

Summer is when you most
think of her, want her
hot, sultry, at times stifling

melting into yourself, sweat
trickles into places that spark
imagination, irritate, perturb

undeniably sensual, cursable,
so memorably bemusing

she will return, as always, the
bittersweet equinox of her

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Now, after ten years, I have returned home to my native Midwest. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
