WEDNESDAY NIGHT
8:30 p.m. Duct tape edges of all windows while listening to Betty Harris. Feel like I’m in movie scene about living in city.

9:00 p.m. Heat comes on for ten minutes. Is insane orgasmic amazing. Almost cry.
And then like cruel, fleeting lover, heat leaves without a trace, never to return.
