Temperatures rising

The molasses air, thick and
Clarified by sunshine, wafts
In through the door, sticky
And sweet with heat and haze

Its honeyed mettle tests mine
Is my character up to the challenge
It brings, can I rise to meet the essence
Of this day, sultry and ardent
Wrapped in the passion of every moment

Perhaps there is no fortitude in high temperatures,
Everything just melts away!
The torrid air creeps in and seeps into
All it surrounds, sticky
And sweet with heat and haze
