FROZEN THOUGHTS
(12/6/13)


you've been
colder

you've seen
more snow

you've skidded
more scarily
through the streets

but
the years add
to the discomfort
and December
is not
as much fun
as it used
to be

you consider
moving
farther south

of course
that means
more summer

more heat

you think
of those places
with year round
moderate
weather

you know
that everyone
wants to live
there

you imagine
the people

the prices

instead
you live
in a place
that sees
the worst
of all seasons

this is
your choice

you look
down
at the ice scraper
in your hand

you've been
inside
for five minutes

you are still
holding
the ice scraper
