Searching for cold in 1000% humidity

I place an ice cube

Between fore finger and thumb

It evaporates, and melts

I trace it along my forehead

Around my eyes

My lips

It drips lightly in their split

I suck in the liquid

Searching for cold

I run it down my throat

I cover my entire neck

With vertical strokes

The ice cube melts

Rolling between my breasts

The spaghetti strap tee

Is now wet

My shorts are wedging

From the humidity

There is no relief

I grab the garden hose

Adjust the setting

To mist

Shoot it up in the air

Hoping with the fall

The droplets will cool.

There is no relief…..

I am still searching for cold

On this hot July day
