for getting sick

the drifting snow
snaking across the pavement
outside of where i work

the wind blowing
leaving icicles on tailpipes
freezing the puddles

just not good enough
for ice skating
or slipping on my ass

just good for getting
my feet wet
and increasing the likelihood

for getting sick
and crying about it
every damn day

until the sun breaks through
the gray shores and clouds
then giving birth to spring

for getting sick

Jason Franklin

Springboro, United States
