Favorite Quote:
"...then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me." - Martin Niemoller

The clothes on the floor
breathe in warmth
like a long drag on a cigarette.
Jeans and tank tops exhale
a cool breeze that chills my bones.

I will not get out of bed
for fear my socks
give me hypothermia
and my sweatshirt
freezes me stiff.

The author's comments:

This winter has felt like no other. For some reason I have not been able to warm up. For the last two months I have been shivering nonstop. Cold down to my bones.
