Frostbite

Poem | Jody's Notes

 

Blue shades, and shades of white.

The chatter of ice. The diamonds

that purr.

 

He lays her down. The

white grass, hard dew.

 

Persephone shivers. Nude

motes in the icelight, he

spreads apart garments,

 

her shaking hologram

silvery within his glassy chest.

The frostly breasts, white-dusted;

the nipples taut blue.

 

When winter comes, when

his icicle deeps within her,

snowflakes like eggs

are born everywhere.
