Sun in July- quadrille for dVerse

Gobstopper sun
rolling sticky down the sky
hot lemon

wayside sprinkled – tiny suns –
piss-scald suns –
tooth-leafed, bright-maned

and the light too heavy
to move quickly
just honey sticky smear
slowly spilling
under the door
through every crack
can’t keep it out

A quadrille for dVerse – our word tonight is “sun”, and a quadrille is a poem of 44 words, including the prompt word. Grace is hosting tonight.
