Frost is my Neighbor – – Leah Woolridge

Frost is my neighbor

by Leah Woolridge

Jack Frost is nipping

without permission, and gripping, and slipping into my coat

Jack Frost is nipping

and constricting, and restricting my vision and throat

Jack Frost is nipping

my arms, and ripping my jeans, and moistening seams, and unzipping my screams

And every day it seems, that everyone accepts him,

but me.
