miami in winter


the city for all it’s might and mercy
seems a distant memory
along with the cold
and the wet snow
it is hard to imagine
not having to peel off layers
not having to wipe sweat from your forehead
it is foreign to think of
shoes covering feet
pants layered over leggings
sweaters surrounding thermals
and a thick wool coat completing the package
where identity disappears
and is replaced by a heaping lump
of unhappy new yorker
trapped inside
the depth of february
