April Fools Day- Christine Ray

I tell myself

it is unexpected snow

in tonight’s forecast

Mother Nature’s cruel

April Fools’ joke

that makes my joints ache

chills me to the bone

not loss

not mortality

edging

ever closer

breathing frost lilies

onto the back

of my neck

etching ice crystals roses

onto my heart
