you are like coming in from the cold,
red cheeks and breathlessness
the weight of clothes
that won’t come off

you’re like huddling by a fire
warming my hands,
fruitlessly touching
smothered in coat and mittens

you’re like falling on ice
that stomach-dropping,
hard-hitting fall
the persistence of a bruise
I feel you too

you are mountains
that cradle the sky
always right here,
even if you’re not around

you are a force of nature
hidden under a knitted hat
and a windswept scarf.
