Slept past seminar

with the help of winter chills

that bring endless colds.


No warmth in the sheets

or limbs willing to share

what heaters won’t give.


I slowed each word spoke,

chasing after sentences

trying to escape.


The fire was burning,

when I stumbled in with bags

spilling from my arms.


Searching for a name,

As is: ‘own work’, written by’,

not just about her.

    Didn’t seem to be too kind
    But now it’s over
