Amber’s Quick Poetry Challenge
In the dense rise of morning, I walk, weighted down with lists.
The desire to break the rules building up, drowning out the crunch of snow underfoot,
calming my frozen cheeks and forgetting the blazing -39 ahead.
Forgetting the ticking metre, forgetting the clumsiness of winter and crossing the street.
