A Letter to January

i just got back inside from being out in the blistering cold and as soon as i did, i peeled away layers of clothing. i peeled away my winter coat, then off went my sweater, and i slipped my scarf off my neck. i ran upstairs and kicked my boots into the closet then tossed my gloves onto my bed. i rubbed my red hands together and touched my nose, which i knew was crimson-red.

i breathed a happy sigh.

ah, january. you have arrived. how have you been?
