Typewriter Rodeo: Evening Walk

Each week, the Standard reaches out to Austin’s Typewriter Rodeo for a custom poem on Texas topics.

Is it possible to manifest cooler weather? To will it into being during the long summer months in Texas?

Evening Walk

they say a cold front is coming

billowing clouds

to fill the sky

rain to fill our yards

they say the temp will drop

twenty degrees

an Arctic plummet

from tonight

to tomorrow

they say it

so it must be true

it must be time

to find your shoes

prep for a cool evening walk

maybe find a sweater

because 99 degrees

on a cloudy eveinng

Is a brilliantly cool temp

isn’t it?

when you live in Teas

and the summer

is nigh
