sweaty as you are

Summer sounds happier


It's the teenage young adult phase of life


When everything is hotter and burns brighter


Driving around with your windows down and


Blasting something that sounds like a smile


You sweat when you are still


You sweat when you move


You sweat when you shower


And when you make love


The only cool place is the pool


Or inside with that fake air that is mean


Or drinking Sweet Tea on your porch


In your shorts made of cut off jean


Sweat as you are


Be that brighter version of yourself


Floating in the water


Where all you can hear is your own breath
