Winter rain 

Graphic by Bruna Costa

it’s so cold it’s hot
drip drip drippity drop
it sleeks down the wind
creates an uneven color
as it begins to weather
down the nation
never-ending like
a riveting dissertation

chills you to the bone
catch it and make
a watery snow cone
you don’t have to drink it
to know this bone broth
is always cold and chilling to the core
you’ll never warm up
and always be sore

so glad I have
a place to stay dry
a home to go to
to run and hide
shelter from the icy rain
I wish that God would refrain
from sending us winter rain
