the sauna of summer

Steam heat. I love leaving the house without a hesitation due to cold. I love not having my nose drip and my eyes water. I love the fluid caress of the humid breeze. The cicadas shrill and frogs grump along the river. I am serene as I ride in this liquid world. Then I stop and my body gushes sweat. Rivulets cascade from my elbows and my eyes sting with salt.

Summer, my season.
