Day 4: Ahhh, A Fan

Here is today’s photograph. I was surprised my how quickly and viscerally I responded to this one.  It’s a good thing I live in Maine, where heat and humidity are infrequent visitors!


Ahhh, A Fan

On certain sticky summer days
when heat slaps me in the face
and my flushed skin drips
and my thoughts grumble
into curdled meanness
and a rash of spiteful words
trembles at my lips,
I would kill
for the simple respite
of a fan
with sweet hum of rotating blades
and soft, stirring air
to dispel the sour chunks
of my humid mood.
