Triple Digits [An Original Poem]
the cracked throat
supine lies slip across chapped
mistakenly informed tourists sight
only to find The Mirage cramped,
arrows claiming parking
ment like the deserted?
A Little History
My poem "Triple Digits" first appeared on the Yahoo Contributor Network on September 7th, 2010. It was written after Louisiana had a heatwave of 100+ ℉ weather. That year our central A/C went out early in the summer. We sectioned off the house with blankets and put a small window unit in the living room, which was the only room in the house with A/C. Needless to say, we camped in the living room for the entire summer.

That poem really had me parched. It reads so well as spoken word. I like how you gave emphasis to the syllables, it really gave the poetry impact. It's great that you're slowly finding your groove again. Nice to have you back!
Thank you @jedau! It's not often that I can say it, but I literally sweated writing this poem. ;)
