VERNON WARING
The Man Who Hated Summer
The man who hated summer smoothes on sweet scented lotions;  his body glistens like a waxed table. Jobless and listless, he soaks in lemon yellow afternoons and smiles at the irony; the season he's never sought is the only one he has. Now he never reads a paper or greets a neighbor or mows the lawn. Instead he simmers on a chaise lounge in a nest of mosquitoes and heat, his flesh taut like sutures, his eyes drawn shut against the sun. Darkening under a paper white sky, he holds his breath while the phone rings and rings and rings.
