sauna nights

my apartment:
a rice cooker
-and I’m the rice-
this week.

the wet heat,
-nothing like the east coast-
but still,
pretty bad.

especially,
if you don’t have a/c
and you have to drink
chilly white wine
-like sauvignon blanc-
to pass out,
-I mean fall asleep-
at night,

since there’s no way
you’ll drift off
in a room
that’s so steamy,
devoid
of sleepy-dreamy.
