heat exhaustion

Sky at Sunsetdeep blood
beats down
upon the casas
by the sea

far too warm
unseasonably
they say
each year worse
than the last

their homes
not cooled
historically
unnecessary

‘tis
no longer true
the warmth
wears them
down

they sleepily ask
where is fall?
the relief,
the sweet crispness

for they are
weary
