The heat is relentless. Even at night
Our air conditioner runs nonstop
Thrumming its efforts to change the
Very air we breathe

Waves of cool wash over us
In our bed only to absorb
Into the vast warm spaces of
This home.

Outside, stars streak across the dark sky
Lost amid the dusty, dusky glow of lights
But there nonetheless
Small bits of dust aflame
Creating a cosmic symphony
Of soundless sounds
