we slide, ghosting
over the iceandsnow, flying
jousting with the car coming towards us
in a second, shattered
poetic justice in my stomach, I blossom
red and purple, green-yellow
am I frozen forever? limp in the snow?
red spread from the head to freeze solid,
they’ll have to un-bury me, digging back the piles of white
scrape me off the tar, eyes staring.
But I’m open, the smoke is hissing and children are screaming
I’m okay, I’m okay,
I’ll call nine-one-one and get us the hell out of here
pull you out, are you okay? our lives just flashed before our eyes,
did you like what you saw?
your blood is rushing too fast, it will freeze in the snow.
