man it was cold

driving through the mountains

sky a deep blue

snow all around

& I hadn’t spoken a word

to anybody for a day

close to two

& all the traffic took a right

even if I knew

on the map my route

took a straight through

& maybe for fellow feeling

some sense of belong

maybe they knew

something I did not

I took that right

ended at a ski resort

watching them pull out boards

skis sticks hats & gloves

multicolour blaze & laughter

for the fun to come

as I turned around

& drove back

on my own

feeling lonelier

than ever before

One thought on “man it was cold
