Deep Thaw


Deep Thaw

water drips slowly
from everywhere
eyelids & lashes
fingertips
runs down my neck & back
gathers in pools at my feet
room temperature
warm as it was inside it

the icy facade is melting
rapidly
giving way to steam
question marks
wanting
waiting
& more question marks
answers aren't necessary yet
having questions to ask at all is...
golden

new is spelled
Y-O-U
or maybe it's y-o-U
but i'm pretty sure it's spelled
M-E
other letters will add themselves
later
when it matters
for now
it doesn't

internal fog
froze
inside out
& now is becoming external rain
umbrellas are pretty
i'll weather this just fine

something will grow when
this shower passes

Watch me move.
