Heat Waves

50, 49, 48
blood boils
veins force steam through
every pore in her body
an electrical spike
Power Outage from an Internal Heat Wave, acrylic, beads on board, 2013
47, 46, 45
too painful to blink
each breath invites
suffocating orange burgundy flames

fire spreads to her feet
44
her knees buckle
43
she falls onto the cool concrete highway
42
speeding cars bring relief

41
40
Power Outage
a second feels like eternity
