Bundle into me. I wish to warm
your neck and toes. I wish to float
down windy streets. I wish to fight
off empty sighs.
Unzip me at the door
as you take off your gloves and turn me soft; at the fridge
as you taste and taste; at the shower walls
as we wash off the cold and feel nothing but water and bodies.
Reach for me. I will
sometimes reach back.
I will try my best to reach back
And when I do, dawn will
break too early and set too late. We will
light up the rickety walls. We will
remove these layers and watch how our bodies heat this mess of a room.
