Typical Oklahoma July days:
sunny,
humid,
hot, in the “mid-to-upper nineties,”
warm breeze
that stills at night. Ten days
of typical
then giant white cumulus at twilight,
thunder,
big drops in the night,
half an inch.
July morning,
cool breeze
through open windows,
thunder,
darkening skies,
a summer downpour
and, wafting through
the east windows,
a whiff of mint.
