said these words and she
a sound like a carousel to my ears
How would he know? We asked, using the same words -
at the same time
Which happens much more than it should
if life were normal
which it is not.
We both wonder just how cold
-5 below wind chill would feel on bare arms
bare backs or fronts.
She offers, opening the nearest window
letting in ice needles
As she stands there in the breeze
I tug on her sweater
halfway up- high enough to make her squeal
High enough to make her close the window
Doubled over - she yells
You froze my bellybutton!
Frostbite did not set in
Which is normal
I gave her navel CPR;
which is not.
