July 28th: 30/30 Project

Shower / by Risa Denenberg

Mornings can be dour.
I languish here for hours,
moldering under the storm.
Heat is salve to ache and heartache.

Steam defrosts stiff right hip, charms
a scalp, thaws sour displeasure. Lemon
sage, lavender, tea tree suffuse me. Still,
it seems, there is never enough pleasure.
