Mr Winter

Late November
still no snow

Mr Winter is waiting
on the subway
like everyone else
for a second there
you almost had me fooled

I belong to nobody
and nobody is always around me
playing with my laughter
making me smile
because it’s all so silly

Life is too easy
let’s complicate it
to make it smaller
the secret is out
but you are not listening

My warm sweater
matches my heart
and my blood red nails polish
brings colors to life

it’s been a crazy year

Winter waits for nobody
it’s all around me
