heat

carry 100 pennies, 50 nickels and 25 mercury dimes in your Levi jean front right pocket all day on a summer day in middle Georgia never stepping in to shade or tarrying for a rest; seeing the whole elephant. Empty that same pocket the next day and smell it. That’s what I smell like. An empty pocket of nickel,copper and tin held up by the barest respectable amount of salt on my brow.
