Excerpt: The Words for Hot // The roosters call morning // from house to house, light takes the hills // until the valley's only mist // hangs back in the landscape's corners. // All night the cold worried my feet. // I dreamed of beaches, // lay awake inventing shapes to trap // my own blood heat, // but found no way to catch // the afternoon sizzle in paving stones, // the hiss from whitewashed walls. A boneache // chill replaced them. This morning // I crave all the names for hot // that are not another body // cauldron, scorch, volcano, August, roast // sirocco. I know there are // not enough various heats in this // one flesh to match the dazzled brick.
