Rookie (January 8,1995- / Toronto, ON, Canada)

Cold


Why is it so cold?
In this room
Of warm rosy hues
So richly furnished;
These golden flames
Crackling behind
The sooty grill;
My shivering self
Wrapped tightly in
So lavish a shawl;
No, it should not feel
So cold.
But however richly
This room is furnished;
However merrily
These golden flames crackle;
However warmed
My stiff body is;
This room
Will still
Feel cold.
