Sobriety in Canada

from Jules - Saturday, March 05, 2005

You can only manage the cold so long
And then it starts to eat at you
Your skin, your bones, your soul.

I’m coming back inside
Shutting out the wind and swirling snow
Shaking off my winter layers
Peeling off my boots and socks
Sitting myself in front of the fire
Holding up my face to the searing heat
Feeling slowly coming back into my fingers and toes
Creeping up my limbs.

God, it hurts.

Where is a St. Bernard when you need one?

Ha? You named yourself after a Bergism?

I guess I would go anonymous too if I couldn't think of anything better to say than that.(reply to this comment

Trust me, you'd hate -45° C plus windchill a helluva lot more. To say nothing of snow (and more fucking snow!), black ice, frostbite, and all the other de rigeur Canadian Winter Experiences. Winter Sucks! :)(reply to this comment

Actually this "poem" was not about Canadian winter. Admittedly not my best work, but it is therapeutic at times to write about things one is actually experiencing when one is experiencing them and it can be a bit raw. If no one else gets it, never mind. I wrote this for me, so please excuse the indulgence of me posting it online. (reply to this comment
