the last day of winter

Sitting in a car on a Georgia Spring day

thirty out

and fifty in

 

I exaggerate I’m sure

but nothing can cool me

not even this thrown open door

 

If only I had the courage

I’d step outside

reach in stride

the bench beneath shade and tree

 

But instead I find myself frozen

left to realize beneath scorching rays

the sun is not my capture

no,

it is me
