  • Wear winter’s scarf of cold air, stings and expectation. Wear her surprise. Wonder her. Stifled in the space between mind and time are stories. Assemble them as you walk with winter on lonely days. As the cold spreads her moisture on pastures of refusing impunity, stretch out your palm for a moment—-for just one moment to feel her moisture affect your skin. Breathe her in, fresh and living, acute and collective.

    Configure her in romance.

    And forget.

    And just when you have evaded her, she is reduced to quivering inflorescence.

    And in that one second, she is within grasp.

    Winter inhabits you.
