Reflections of Chandler and Marlowe In The Hot Humid Heat of The City

Hot humid day in Vancouver

the most humid since I’ve moved here 8 months ago

I walk the streets of the City 

like I’m Philip Marlowe

since Raymond Chandler’s prose

always describes hot muggy days in LA

when his private eye is out

walking about.

Coincidentally I see a whole bunch of women out today

wearing evening dresses

and they don’t appear to be part of a wedding party

Just out and about wearing evening dresses

on a day hot and humid at that.

I really feel like I’m in a Chandler novel today

hot and humid and feeling sticky 

out on the sidewalks and streets

and hotter women in hot tight dresses 

making a sizzling summer day

sizzle even more.

    Ooh…I love this poem! It’s cool! It is! 🙂
    Creative fun connection to Chandler and his Marlowe! 🙂
    I posted on WP and on Xanga about the heat. Both silly. One pick-up lines, one a silly hot sonnet. 🙂 Guess some of us have hot and humid on our minds! 🙂
    Cool HUGS!!!

      Yes whenever it’s hot and humid, I always think it would be nice to have some hot steamy sex to go with it. 😉
