S is for Supine
The day was hot, really hot. The bag was heavy, really heavy. He shifted it from one shoulder to the other, but it didn't help much. And there were four more in the back of the van. The path was unshaded and yellow dust rose around his feet and settled on his skin as he trudged down to the house and then up the flight of steps. When the last one landed with a thump on the deck he wiped his sleeve across his face and sank down. Slowly he lay back on the soft grass and closed his eyes.
