Everywhere, man blames nature and fate, yet his fate is only the echo of his character and passions, his mistakes and his weaknesses

The temperature dropped to four
Degrees last week.
It would have been wonderful
If not for this intense feeling
Of temporariness.

I see the dichotomy between
The warm and light of my
Room and the dark, cold expanse
Of a small southern town
Nervous with the feeling of change.

I put my forehead on the glass
Of my window, smearing
Makeup and oil from my face.

It’s not cold enough to make me
Feel any better about.
