winter isn’t the enemy.

Frozen Brain, by Iivio Ansaldi
Frozen Brain, by Iivio Ansaldi

 

Forced to the warmth

found between folds
of halfhearted
dreams suspended
beneath animated skies

frozen in unwelcome moments

of silent disposition –

the winter is surely to blame.

It must be the cold
misguiding our
mammalian hearts.

It must be

the antiquated threat
of starvation,
the genetic predisposition
for acquiring adipose,
the indiscriminate urge
for securing shelter

that a lengthy
winter brings
causing ants
in the pants
of logical motivation.

No amount of
artificial ultraviolet
can cure the
frostbitten psyche
of an incessant Everest.

  1. The peacock lies all the time
    especially when tail feathers are spread
    all those eyes pretending to see
    yet they are so very, very blind…
