OKLAHOMA JANUARY
(1/13/17)

75 degrees
on Wednesday

shorts

short sleeves

but on Friday
the 13th
there's freezing
rain

ice warnings

power outage
alerts

we almost
dread
the winter warmth
since it always
precedes
another cold
front

we drive
to our jobs
on streets
still too warm
to freeze

watching
the ice
forming
on the trees

on the
power lines

happy
to see
the lights
still on
at work

wondering
how the hell
we're getting
home

wondering why
we're not living
in San Diego
