Cold Comfort

Work Text:

Winter embraces
This Northern pair
As they embrace each other;
The snow might hold them there forever --
As forever they might hold each other.

The poetry she embodies
Somehow sustains them
In conjoined life;
The world is curtained off in swirling whiteness –
In whiteness that can either end or start a life.

There is everything warm to lose
And everything cold to win.
He puts her cold fingers in his warm mouth
And lets her coldness enter in.
