Sunburnt , Fatigued, and Hungry.......

There is probably NOTHING more exhausting...
more arduous....
more essentially DEHYDRATING....more LIMITING even...
than being stuck outside in the HOT, SUMMER sun....
NO SWIMMING POOL IN SITE on this sweltering day....
BAKING....like a freakin' Matzoh.......
feeling literally.......
like an anthropomorphic TON OF BRICKS.....
Yes....a HUMAN SACK OF BRICKS and MORTAR......
like the CHILDREN of ISRAEL in the desert....
STUCK.....yet FREE ?
One can FRY a VERITABLE EGG on the TAR of the street...
Stomach in knots....
HOT KNOTS.......
HUNGRY, hot knots...
feet sweltering....SWELLING up like 2 big, juicy TOMATOES.......
No iced tea in site....No ice at all......
for it has already succumb to the heat upon impact....
melting into a small, hopeless puddle of tepid nothingness.....
NOT THIRST QUENCHING......NOT A BIT....
Contrarily......
the melted ice is thirst INDUCING....
The embodiment of the POWER OF SUGGESTION....
a hint of the FALSE HOPE of HYDRATION....
Tomorrow/s another day, right ??
