june's getting thick & hot
Trade Fair, doors open, whatup
A/C set to Slater mode, too cold.
"of course"ly the walk got me
forgetting every item
off my three-itemed
"i only want three items"
1 am grocery list right
as i pass item no. 1 on my left.
coconut mmm so delicious & on sale
check and real quick check check
on my way over to the teller
this woman my age walks past
wondering if i should tell her
she's lost looking sorta; moment's passed
checkout guy smirks as he checks me out
he remembers me nah not really
he sees me, but i'm everyone, all the time
me or you, twenty-whatever y/o
"it's hot as hell" written
all over the face
walking down grocery aisles
1am just to escape
an apartment that's non air-conditioned
because the thick hot got the brain
craving up a craving for 'ice cream'
so strong the body got up out and got
cooling down enough so the brain forgot
teller's telling me my toll
ate half a pint walking home
