As long we're canning, I want to can this day

As long we're canning, I want to can this day.
I want to take all this heat--
The sharp heat of the sun on my shoulders,
The hazy heat in the distance,
The shiny, nebulous heat mirage on the highway,
The stifling heat inside my car,
The sunny yellow heat all around--
Draw it in, stuff it in a canning jar,
Stow it in the basement,
And bring it out some frigid day 
In January. Because I'll really be missing it then.
