Free the sun July, refers to the month of July which is a winter month in the Southern hemisphere. This piece of poetry by Pearldiver, explores the depth of relationships between the heart of winter, that of the subject and that of a child of summer.
‘Free the Sun’
Happy Birthday you despicably
cold-hearted bitch July!
Remember when you thrust
a chef’s knife into the chest
of your summer conception
Your frozen breath clouding
those curled frosty thin lips
distorting the face of your contempt
As surely as new born blades of grass
bitten by your chill, wither in retort
I will piss on your frigid, bare grave
my spring to melt all your pretentiousness
your masked bitterness, spitefully forged
Forever, I will wash July away!
So I may save the sun you tried to kill
That winter’s day…
