Middle Aged Wednesday

Cicada concert has begun in
Surround sound
The ancient call and response
Of these inveterate invertebrates
Sun closing down on another hump day
One of those middle-of-the-week middle aged Wednesdays
Cicada concert volume rising and falling
Along with the aspirations of the day
Why is it that all I want is another glass of red wine and
Slightly cooler temps
Refuge from the stifling humidity of this endless summer
A little more sunlight by which to read Ginsberg’s Reality Sandwiches in natural light
And a cigar
On the day I learned my total cholesterol and LDL numbers beg for pharmacotherapeutic intervention
Despite my lifelong efforts to stifle the genetic code so bequeathed to me?
