Cleveland, 7 a.m.

What have I done to deserve
the penal cold of
Ohio January?

The bathroom window is opaque
with ice which
makes this morning
all the more desperate
I can sense the sun but
cannot remove the thick
solid veil from my eyes

My gloves won't match today because
it was dark and I overslept
and I don't have time to
search for the coordinates

I hate being lonely and
I hate being cold and
it has been years since I
have been lonely but
oh I am cold
