Catch Some Wide Eye

Thirst


sweat
but not the king that beads up
then rolls down your nose
like coils of smoke down your throat
but the kind that drenches you
drowns you
soaking through denim
and tight, white undershirts
that might as well not be there at all
washing your whole, white body clean
even into the darkest parts of you
basting you
in spicy earth liquids
enough to lick all the way up
in the broadest, boldest heat of summer.
