Escape’s almost in our power.

The air bites.

Our breath smokes

Winter’s long wait is over.

She inhales a scent of memory

Old sweater that remembers the body it enfolded

Releasing comforting peace amid grief.

Thinking of a character in a short story I’ve been crafting, today.

Ah, you with your honeyed tongue

whispering words that make me feel

nervous of my sweet tooth.

Waiting on the table.
