Summertime and the Breathing's Not Easy

I step with splashes, but there’s no saving rain.
Only sun much more hot than heat.
A steaming stalled sizzle of summer steam.
It is my sweat dripping on the street
And forming puddles at my feet.

Each week on Sunday the Monkey Man gives a challenge to write a poem in only 160 characters. Like writing a tweet – it takes some doing to convey thought in so few words. Come join the fun!
