Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

If you're in the mood, you can read some sexiness into "Heat"—perhaps H.D. is referring not just to the weather, but also to sexual desire. This reading is a good one, but it's not the only one, and it requires some subtlety. If you read this one to your kid brothers and sisters, we're pretty sure that any sexual connotations will fly right over their pretty little heads.
