Cold, windy night.
Winding down on the balcony
in a trench coat.
Listening to the rain
that sounds like fire
devouring crunchy stone pine branches.
I comb my thick beard with my fingers.
I feel the cold resting on my face.
I try to brush it off — the cold —
Yesterday was a good day.
Today is a good day, too.
There’s work, yes, but also time to rest.
It’s really cold, though.
My fingers want to snuggle into my pockets
and cuddle with the cutter and the lighter.
But they have work to do.
In thirty minutes,
when I’m done drinking and smoking,
I’ll go inside and sit by the fireplace.
I’ll give my fingers their well-deserved rest.
Maybe I’ll turn on the TV and have a cup of tea.
