Late November rain cold
Hot water ran out in the shower cold
Fruit pop from the way-way back of the freezer cold
Gotta get out of bed at 6am and you left the damn window open cold
Looked right through you like you weren’t even there cold
Pouring down your lungs and sucking out your breath cold
Ungodly cold
You’re only with him ‘cause he’s got a nice house cold
Banks Alaska in the forever night of December cold
Sheriff evicting a disabled veteran for a missed mortgage payment cold
I’m just doing my job cold
Liquid nitrogen cold
Cold enough to shatter teeth cold
I guess this is it cold
Holding out for one more day cold
then another
