2020-10-27 – Hot Cocoa Bath

a parade floats
in on the
tail

of
another,

we’re kids waiting,
wringing cold
hands..

feeling winter
in every
crack,

++++

heads spinning into
sugar plum
crashes

sh-shaking torpor
from stiffer
lashes,

then we
race home,

++++

finally, prune feet
are freed from
old boots..

to slip into energizer
bunny slipper
shoes (don’t
laugh)..

to waddle down
a hazy hall

through steamy
plumes to my
hot cocoa
bath,

stirred creamy
with love..

topped with mint and
marshmallows
too..

++++

drawn for a winter long
bask as i drift
back to
you.
