When water beads on plumbing pipes, sweating
profusely from humidity in air
as thick, sticky air drip-drips with steady
weary drizzle that seems to have heartbeat
while it appears that every leaf doth weep,
it becomes at night difficult to sleep,
so that even the murmur sweep of creek,
gurgling on its way, offers no relief.
During high humidity sweat clings close,
refusing to gently evaporate
like your fantasy vacation weekend
at a location you have often dreamed.
Little can be done, but plunk ice in drink,
or stick your head under the running sink.
