Woman Wipes Down Dog

HEATWAVE: A literary response

(I am really pleased with the punctuation in this one.) (This is not part of the story.)

Here it is.

The sun: it shines! It shines! It burns. I am too warm; this jumper, this wool - too heavy.

I walk slow through the streets of my town gasping / squinting /sweating.

Woman wipes down dog with a flannel.

I see the dog...

...and the dog
