       Bah. Hate the title, think it's lame. And anyone from a hotter climate (read: almost everyone) is going to laugh at me for this. Actually I'm being very unfair in this poem. Makes it sound like I greatly prefer Mtl to QC... but they're both home and they have different qualities is all... love 'em both.

    dotsSummer Heatdots

    Quebec City:
    Cloying humidity strangles pedestrians
    (and other unfortunates) in the summer—
    Too hot to breathe; eyes
    roll back, clammy hands
    rub aloe into burns. Red faces swell,
    tempers shatter
    winter-calm households.

    Almost wish for the
    burning ice of February's
    Carnival streets.

    Heat makes the city come alive.
    It's the yearly rebirth of the soul
    Jack Frost killed—it's baked
    into the very concrete. Sainte Catherine
    and Peel—a walk along Maisonneuve,
    sweating but on fire. A far cry
    from the desolation and grief
    these streets house when dressed
    in winter's grey robes, when one
    dares not step out of doors
    for fear of dying from
    lack of sun.

      it's so true though. montreal handles summer heat with grace while it tends to turn qc into a raging beast.

    good write, you've got a fan here :)

      I agree with JDNeverrest.

    Yeah, I live in northern South Dakota, and so I've got close to the same climate as you. It's hard to believe, but it IS hot as hell! And cold too... cold as ice, but I'm willing to sacrifice...

    sorry, I'm watching "The Wedding Singer," and 80's music is plaguing me. ANYWAYS, I liked this. I have no feedback, just praise!
