O wind, rend open the heat,
cut apart the heat,
rend it to tatters. 

Fruit cannot drop
through this thick air - 
fruit cannot fall into heat
that presses up and blunts 
the points of pears 
and rounds the grapes. 

Cut the heat - plough through it, 
turning it on either side 
of your path.

   - Hilda Doolittle
