It’s blistering cold and
Frost bitten gusts.
It rained throughout last night.

At negative twenty-two
Coffee instantly goes cold.
The streets are spit shined bright.

Walking becomes
A sort of dance.
They’re just trying to cross this street.

He slipped and
She fell.
Mortified in the ice and the sleet.


The author's comments:
The Mortified can be interpreted two ways: Literally (a guy and a girl fell in the snow and were embarrassed), or it could be a representation of their relationship.
