Rose
« on: February 14, 2020, 09:59:04 AM »
Summer heat beats down on me unrelentingly, waves of energy pounding in an unrelenting rhythm. It's a struggle for my disoriented body to stay upright so I lay down for a moment. The earth feels parched. Nothing but dry dusty soil, coloured now a light moisture-less brown. It crumbles as I rub it between my fingers, the particles that don't find their way into my fingerprints blown away by my breath. My mouth is dry, there's not enough saliva in there to stop my tongue sticking to the usually damp flesh that comprises my mouths' insides. I need a drink. My body complains as I use what feels like my last reserves of energy to haul myself upright once again. I fill my lungs with dry summer air and head off once more towards salvation. The pub, 'The Rose'.
