The world is flocked white

and I stretch my toes searching for your lingering warmth.

Absent.

It’s slow on the road today,

highway’s slick and I wish I could take a sick day.

Absent.

The world is flocked white

like it’s powdered me on the trees; I’m empty.

Absent.

The world is flocked white

I want to abrogate responsibility and hibernate.

Absent.

    Very interesting evolution of “Absent” here

  2. On days like that, my sentiments, exactly!

  3. Your words feel like powdery snow. I love it! Yes, I’m ready to hibernate.
