SWELTER

I thought it rained more
The river runs slowly
Low
And clear

Last afternoon with thick black clouds
Wind picking up
No relief from swelter

Thunder rumbles
Like when we were told
God’s bowling up there

I forget with whom

Lightening strikes
Pause
And BOOM

It rained for five minutes
How’s that?
No relief from swelter

Morning comes and
The river runs slowly
Low
And clear

Almost cold

Shirt off
Source of life
And float downstream

From swelter.
