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.

  5. I like imagining the computer (or us) being left out in the cold by your turning off the machine, great imagination!

    So sorry you missed the fun, but probably you had already bought the candy you were going to serve, so there is a bright side....
