Eyes watering like volatile faucets,
Uncontrolled feet, trudging forward.
Arctic explorers, lost in pursuit,
Or polar bears hunting sustenance.
Our venture is unnecessary,
Possibly frivolous, but our feet
Keep moving as untethered horses
Trample grass beneath their feet.
The ice is al most heated with its cold,
Our cheeks reddened and sweat forming
From the sheer effort
Of staying warm.
It seems impractical that we
Should peel our gloves off and face the numbing air
In order to grasp each others' fingers
And faces and kiss the frozen lips
On this outdoor adventure of ours.
