stay awake and watch for the data

it's almost too hot to be alive.
i, apparently, am almost too hot to be alive.
i've spent so much time trying
to get this city to do what i want and now that it is
i'm not cooperating.

on the balcony i tried to remember
the exact wording of some dumb
aphorism about leading a horse to water
and when he said, what is it?
all i could do was stare at the skyline.
