"Triple Digits" Lauren McBride, Frequent Contributor

Triple Digits

That day was so hot
a horned toad

hovered by
the lid full of water

we provided,
both front feet

on the rim
as if to say

this is mine -
and thanks.

Poet's Notes: This is a true story that happened during a family trip to west Texas during a record setting heat wave. You know it's hot when even the desert-loving horned toad (actually a lizard) needs a water break.
