The blue marble in his head took over for a while 

when he saw a dark spot in a patch of bright light. 

His head that was full of heavy nervousness— 

for a moment, suddenly, grew very still. 

Was the dark spot something evil, 

or a random part of nothingness? 

Should we cast a blind-eye to the sight 

of hidden stars, each lasting a lengthy dog’s smile? 

And the humidity’s too high today— 

another trip to a new park   

is cancelled. Too darn hot outside! 

When will we finally enjoy Summer? 

Another trip to a new park  

bit the dust, thanks to falling rain. 

When will we finally enjoy Summer? 

Now the winds come in; the clouds are heavy; the hot air 

bit the dust, thanks to falling rain. 

It’s too windy to sail on the Hudson.  

Now the winds come in; the clouds are heavy; the hot air 

dissipates, but only for a while. 

It’s too windy; the sail on the Hudson 

is cancelled. Too darn hot outside! 

(dissipates but only for a while) 

and the humidity’s too high today.
