Small winter poem 2 | Escape


Someone tell me the nearest
place where the sun shines
so I can drive there,
pull a folded camping chair from my trunk
and sit
with my face
to the sun
until my skin
burns and peels and
my veins know vitamin D
in them once more.

And the sunlight can pull
the knots from my shoulders
and the shadows and cobwebs from my mind
and I will drive home again–
recharged like a battery
from the very memory.
