In Store

On course for spring,
we run into frigidity,
a storefront of lingering winter.
See how we crash through
the front window,
streaking across the icy foyer,
skidding our way to the stockroom,
knocking down half-displays
of navy capris and white t-shirts.
They were just about
to unpack the short-shorts, too.
Too bad.
