Below Zero

Today
is white cold
below zero
and you are
on the verge
again
of driving away
with your
whereabouts
unknown
into the bright
afternoon
where you
could easily
find yourself
in a ditch
full of snowflakes
that are beautiful
like that boy
who has warmed
your heart—
but one touch
from you
and the
melting begins
and doesn’t end
until
everything good
is ruined
and washed
away.
