distant generator

i began to notice
the cold spot on my leg,
children giggling,
my stomach growling,
your hand warm on my hip.

but i retreated,
turned you off
like the electricity,
leaving you shivering 
and wondering why.
Halloween's cancelled, we have a ton of snow and no power, no heat, no hot water. Stealing some heat and wifi to post a couple stormish poems. See you when the power's back on.
