Hot Time Blues

The heat envelops, two by two,
Precautionary umbrella.
Cat paws are
wake-up alarms, early in the morning.
Laying low, as heat rises.
Renegade dogs with lolling tongues;
Rows of unnecessary wares.
Arepas and dead-end ice cream factories.
Sweat and Jellyfish blood.
Puerto Rican boxing bouts.
Love is, my love,
Understanding and Faith.
I got it covered.

*Rainy Pittsburgh, 1941.
