It rained yesterday
a bronco ride of a storm
but with no cool relief
it taunted us with what could be
if it had lasted longer than eight minutes

Cool drops immediately turned
to steam as
they hit the pavement
Air awash
in fragrant ozone

Glasses fogged
pores opened
At least I could cancel the facialist.
