A Summer Poem Set from the Heart

A summer’s day sweat
As irritating as cold
I want my spring back

Promise of some rain
The graphics are on the maps
Last minute veering

People say shut up
Summer heat beats winter cold
Both can go fuck off

(Yeah.  I’m in a mood and needed to creatively vent.  Summer and winter can hold hands and leap face first into a pit of rusty nails and fire ants.)

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. LOL Charles! I couldn’t agree more. The summer heat here in Florida is killing me just as much as the cold did in winter! I want utopia… 70-75 degrees every day and 50’s at night! 😀

    Favorite months – March winds and kite flying…October’s release from the heat. Spring/Spring, right?
    We’re still waiting for rain here 😦 I’m happy, though, that it’s rained down in Southern California. They were so horribly dry, too. Just with their freeway hadn’t washed away with the rain. Yikes! California can’t win!
    Loved the poem, Charles.

  6. I am one who has always said, “It’s better to sweat than freeze” but as with all things, there is a limit. Especially with me starting to get a bit aged. I am finding I am less tolerant of the heat, and less worried about colder weather.
    I do have a theory, though: The sun exploded already, but people “in the know” rightly decided to not inform the general public. It would be better for extinction to come about by natural forces than letting everyone wipe each other out in the panic and riots that would surely follow such an announcement.

    • I think because it’s easier to stay warm with layers, so winter is slightly more tolerable. If it gets too hot then you can’t strip down completely and get any work done. So you have to use fans and the AC, but power companies always up their rates during this time of year. So blatantly greedy.

      An interesting theory. Though one could see it making a little sense to cause the riot, filter out the weak-minded, and then work on finding a way for the stronger survivors to continue. Maybe that’s a bit too evil.

      • “So you have to use fans and the AC…”
        Unless, of course, the A/C breaks down; as ours did this past weekend. Damn hot outside made for nearly unbearable inside even with fans blowing full speed.

        Riots used as population control. What a concept. But while the military might stoop to such, do you think scientists would?

      • That sucks. The one in my son’s room might be going, which has me worried. As far as scientists stooping to that level, I could see a few, but not all. Yet, the information getting into the hands of a person who would is a possibility. A scientist could simply trust the wrong person.
