humidity and hate by J.J. Campbell

 

one storm after
another

summer in the
midwest

it’s all humidity
and hate

the rain supposedly
keeps the crime
rate down

i guess someone
going to commit
murder doesn’t
have time for an
umbrella

a poncho could
get in the way
of pulling a gun
quickly

and no one wants
their best hoodie
to feel like a wet
dog after a few
minutes in the
rain

there must be no
crime at all in the
pacific northwest
