Summer is welcome

When your shirt starts sticking to your back and sleep comes only with aircon, you know that summer is near. When the cockroaches start crawling out of garbage bags and blackberries start falling off the trees, staining the pavement; it’s coming.
It starts to drizzle more frequently and the sky grows dark in the early afternoon. These are precursors to the blazing heat and clear skies to come.
Meanwhile, I’m shuffling through my papers, wondering how I’ll feel when this last stretch finally comes to an end. With summer comes the promise of the rest of my life.
