Rules of Attraction

With a few trips to snow planned within the next weeks, I started contemplating my relationship with winter…


Rules of Attraction

If similarities attract,

we should be best friends

or something close to that

the snow-white type beauty

with an icy smile,

boring, bitchy, brutal-cold

both you and I

we are so alike

I should like you, no doubt.

Yet every time you come to town,

I’d like to hide or hibernate

or flee

where palm trees and beaches

drinks with ice

Italy, Spain

or Southern France

somewhere, where either Celsius or Fahrenheit

would melt you in my eyes,

in case you decided to follow me,

groom chasing his runaway bride.

That similarities attract, I can’t deny,

yet with one exception

of winter and I
