"The heat presses down equally
everywhere. It wants to focus itself,

to vaporize something instantaneously,
efficiently—that shopping cart, maybe,

or that half-crushed brown-glass bottle—
but can’t quite. Asphalt softens in the sun.

Nothing’s detachable.
The silvery zigzag line

stitching the tarmac to the sky around the edges
is no breeze, just a trick of heat."
-excerpt from "A Parking Lot in West Houston" by Monica Youn
