It was 26º when I woke up this morning (a poem)

The coldest days are often the clearest…

Golden light and chill
blinded eyes and cold feet

Calm and an unsettled feeling

This is the day
like the day yesterday
like the day before
and so it goes

On I go
stopping to check if anyone’s listening
then going on once I see they’re not

Calm and an unsettled feeling

This is the day
I don’t know about tomorrow
or the day after
and so it goes

Off I go
left to my own devices—
the ones I’m able to replace

The rest take up space
because that’s what they do

Which one am I to you?
