heat so thick you can taste it. mosquitoes nipping at ankles and sweaty kids letting the cold air out of the house. looking not too far ahead and many months behind. wondering at when things will be whole again. still: the sticky-sweet sign of summer, chocolate melting in the corners of a two-year-old's mouth, a small boy sure that he can toast the perfect 'mallow and not get burnt.
