end of the heatwave

a big dunder of rain shatters the searing cupola
trapped in a humid thirty five degrees sometimes
sharp fragments of the shadowed past
ripped through the sadness of the anaemic now
slivers of memory slashed tenuous self-esteem
the wasting moments of wrong choice pocked
the face you wore to keep the guilt at bay
