  • I had originally called this “itch”, but after a bite to eat, I decided that was implied. August makes it more universal and more connected to nature — more haiku-like.

    This is nice. Beautiful image and the title is perfect.

      Thanks Penelope. There was a secondary sense that I tried to play on — the idea of the wheatgerm, and by implication the endosperm, also sticking to her thighs — and from that the idea that all of August has made love to her. I tried different versions of this but couldn’t pull it off without its seeming forced. Hopefully a little of that suggestion is still there. I might revisit this.
