An open letter to the sun

It’s been a while
since you made an appearance
which is this game you play every year
and you know I’m a little tired of the drama
I think you do it for the attention
which is silly because I read
1.3 million earths could fit inside you
which is totally impressive
so no need for all this hard-to-get stuff
you’re a flaming ball of molten heat
so when the weather guy shows those photos
of a few gauzy clouds
I’m not buying the story
that they’re in your way
I think we both know
you’re just a glutton for desire
so here it is
I am ravenous for you
come soon
for God’s sakes
I am as damp and cold
as a bug.
