Summer Snow

I ache the day, the summer day,
the too-warm, slick and sweaty day,
a day too hot for even rain,
a day laid low, that hovered
close, that fell in drifts
and choked my soul.

It smothered him then slipped away,
away from heart and labored breath,
away from me to snowy death,
away, away,

I ache that day.
