Write: At Dusk

Exercise:  Think about dusk during summer.  Do you look forward to a break from the sun to get ready to go out and enjoy the cooler weather?  Do you mourn the loss of another bright day?  Do you give thanks that the heat has broken?  Or are you grumpy about mosquitoes?

The heat breaks at dusk.
The lighted numbers on the bank sign
decrease into something manageable
but the night is still soaked with seat.
The vapor condenses to a rolling fog
and the humidity smothers like a blanket.
