Ersatz & Quixotic and the Northern Summer

It’s June so there’s no avoiding it. Sun bearing down on everything whether it wants it or not, unrepentant light making the air heavy. It’s summer.

and then later



Heat by H.D.

O Wind, rend open the heat, 
Cut apart the heat
Rend it to tatters.

Fruit cannot drop
Through this thick air–
Fruit cannot fall into heat
That presses up and blunts
The points of pears
And rounds the grapes.

Cut the heat–
Plough through it,
Turning it on either side
Of your path.
