Heat – A Poem

Clip clapping in flip flops on coals for pavement,

Where heat waves hatch briquettes for cement.

Fainting ice cream bars unsuccessfully seek shade,

Behind once chilled tongue twisting lemonade.

Barbecued scotch bonnets in pickle produce,

Sticks of dynamite masquerading as hot sauce.

Rear-view memories, luxurious sauna to the bone,

Tropical heat and heart warming coals at every turn.

  1. Are you having a heat wave over there Suzette? I love this. It’s all faint-worthy, but my favourite line: “Barbecued scotch bonnets in pickle produce,” oh my, that is just so hilarious divine. πŸ€©πŸ‘Œ
