Stifling August

When I see august in my memory,

It’s a simmering orange horizon.

I feel a breeze that brings no relief

And mourn the fleeting summers of my youth.

The heat; it’s choking me.

And anxiety over lost time dawns on all of us.

When I think about the summers of my life,

Will it feel like the end of an august day?
