Judith Shatin: Three Summers Heat *
                    i. Just now the sea-green banners fly
                    ii. Just now the early peach is red
                    iii. It's midsummer and too hot to walk
                    iv. Summer earth is windless. Heat still presses
                    v. Light Clothes! Few Clothes!
                    vi. I remember desire like white light
                    vii. I raise my head to look at t'ung trees
*for soprano & computer music (soprano: Susan Narucki/texts: Tzu Yeh, 5th century Chinese poet)
**from the "Repo Man" soundtrack, the movie and soundtrack always remind me quite strongly of summer.

John Cage:
Indeterminacy 31
Once        when  I  was  a  child  in  Los  Angeles
       I  went  downtown  on  the  streetcar.
                It  was  such  a  hot  day  that,
            when  I  got  out  of  the   streetcar,
                 the   tar   on   the   pavement   stuck
  to   my   feet.                        (I   was   
barefoot.)         Getting   to   the   sidewalk,
               I   found   it   so   hot         that
  I   had   to   run   to   keep   from   blistering
  my   feet.                        I   went   into   a
  five   and   dime   to   get   a   root   beer.
                    When   I   came   to   the   counter
        where   it   was   sold   from   a   large
barrel         and   asked   for   some,
     a   man   standing   on   the   counter   high
  above   me   said,                  “Wait.   I’m   
putting   in   the   syrup         and   it’ll   be
a   few   minutes.”         As   he   was   putting
  in         the   last   can,                   he   
missed         and   spilled   the   sticky   syrup
        all   over   me.                         To   
make   me   feel   better,                   he   
offered   a   free   root   beer.
    I   said,                   “No,   thank    you.”
