Naked Heat

I’ve moved my bed

It’s under that fan

It cools me off on this hot summer night

I live in an attic apartment

This heat makes hell feel comfortable

Air conditioning is leisure I can’t afford

I like to jump out of the shower

Not dry off, and lay wet under the fan

That’s the only way I get to sleep on these summer nights

In the summer I have no girlfriend

No one dares to come up to my apartment

I will have to wait till winter for somebody to lay with

Not to disappointed

Another person up here would only make things hotter

I have to leave the windows open

The street noise and music from the ghetto pours in

A few times a pigeon has come in

It’s a risk I will gladly take

The cool air from the fan against my wet body

The occasional breeze blowing me to sleep

Day #99 SJD
