much like the snow man

You’ve lived here
most all of your life.

But still feel a stranger.

You said,

“I think they
are afraid of me,
they
don’t understand me.”

I agreed.

“They think
you are different
than those who live here,
have always lived here,
even if they once
lived somewhere else.”

You’ve been frozen,
and it is cold here…
but you haven’t been
their kind of cold
long enough.

    I also like the way you structured this, as I think structure can add a lot to a poem or other bit of writing.

      Just life in general intruding…finishing the dissertation…that kind of small stuff.

      Words flowing like water in a drought…or bathroom visits after high levels of iron. :)

      You know?
