A Typical Weather Report

Today is hot,
yesterday was hot,
tomorrow will be hot:
hot, more hot, most hot.

An old friend lives
where it’s not so hot
and often reminds me
of her advantages.

She relates her rought
through old address books
cancelling friends
burrowing each in a shaft.

She comes to visit
sticks me with a meat
thermometer
and feeds me ice cream.
