Here Comes the Sun

We outran the Arctic cold
coming down from up north
spreading across the country.
Thank the Lord the sky was
clear all the way west. It
was nineteen degrees in Gallup
when we left for the Valley
of the Sun and sixty-three when
we got there only to be accused
by several people of bringing
the cold their way. Sixty-three
degrees Fahrenheit. Seriously?
Damn balmy. What’s wrong
with these people? Sun stroke?
Tomorrow? Seventy-eight in
December. Please, give me a
break. Of course, they were
kidding.
