WINTER STROLL
(1/7/10)


yes
I'm cold

feel
my hands

feel
my face

I'm
fucking
freezing

what?

why
did I
go outside
in a below zero
wind chill
without
a coat?

the sun
is shining
and I wanted
to feel as much
of the warming rays
as possible

I'm tired
of being trapped
by this seasonal
proclivity
toward pain

it wasn't
as if
I was going
to be out there
forever

I was never
more
than five minutes
away
from the door

I'm not
a moron

just a bit
of an Arctic
asshole
come home
