The power has gone out. we toil with the furnace as brisk air flows through the seamless windows. it calms me. I am independent. the air is dry but lively. i want this. there is comfort in isolation.
I can see the flicker of fire. for a moment, I can feel the warmth of the end of the night. we will suffer through the winter without the flame. we will be stronger in the spring without you.
ill pile on blankets. ill wear wool socks. ill forget about this winter and you. We will be stronger in the spring without you.
