bright lights shine into
poisoned eyes see
frozen trees dance
like there's no tomorrow
and there's never been a yesterday.

everything is so beautiful
frozen solid with hearts made of
trees and
cement and

but it's sad to know that
summer will come running up soon
like a hyper kindergartener
to take away the glitz and glitter
of the ridley winter sky.
