a margarita can cool down the hottest night;
this one at one hundred degrees is surely one
of those as we watch girls walk by in high heels
and miniskirts on the sidewalk, heat waves
ripple over their bodies, sweat drips down their
backs leaving behind dark meandering trails.
the ice feels good in our mouths, we lean
back in our chairs to watch the moon rise
on this lovely, hot night.
