Poetry

19.

Taking one sock
off another sock
like peeling plastic off an orange,
but the fleshy pulp of the fruit
is so cold,
almost frozen,
so those extra layers are nice
and necessary,
’cause no one wants their feet to fall off.

One more weekend
doing work in the mountains
is checked off,
so it’s time to warm up
and
sleep.
