The Spirit of August

The spirit of August

Dances slowly across my tongue

The breath of summer fills my lungs

I inhale deeply and hungrily for that taste

Flowing powerfully through my blood

I feel August surge through me

Consuming my entire being

Erasing all but himself from my mind

I lose all consciousness

I am in the surreal world of eternal sunshine

Don't wake me if I'm dreaming

This is where I want to stay

Consumed for all eternity

By the spirit of August
