it was hot
it was hellishly hot
she was hot
we were all hot
but she must have been the hottest
she bitched
she harangued
she bellyached
she complained
she was hot
she said that she was trying to be cool
because she had to be cool to meditate

turn on the fans full speed
turn up the a.c. full blast
because you got to be cool & comfortable to meditate
you got to be cool to maintain
you got to sustain -coolness

it is unrealistic & it is cruel
to withstand distraction, to withstand temptation
for even the holy of holiest
when no matter the scene, you cannot be cool
