RAINE REFLECTIONS

Wind Chill

 

Soaking


in lukewarm water


bathroom door ajar


game show blaring


a living-room television


entertains the dust


and empty bottles


of last night’s failure


applause


laughter


snow outside is heavy


ice numbs frightened marrow


there are things to do


so many things


left undone


and no will left


to do them
