Shut Down Due to Ice

Forgot coffee
on counter apples
in drainer feverishly
navigating roads slick
with worry concerning
apples of your cheeks
flushed fever-red
never noticing red light
rode late night only
countering
your argument perfectly
too late to respond
having forgotten black ice
night-drained
concerted
just how slick you can be.
