I need to live somewhere with seasons.
Sun, left unchecked,
Pins you. Laser pointer on a parkway.
Cold, left unchecked,
Sheathes you away in sheets.
Microfiche slides, julienne ribbons, nuclear snow.
I need to live
Where autumn wind wraps crisp around sleepy legs
And spring rains wash us together,
Easy as saying "I want you to stay."
