Heat

By sundown, it was down to 105°F out today.

I'm staying inside, thank you very much, for as much of the time as I think I can get away with. Work has powerful air conditioning.

Commuting by foot is so much fun.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
