winter: naked

I didn’t shower when I awoke today
instead I tumbled out the door
with nothing but white sheets wrapped around my torso
bare feet getting cold while they tip toe
over wintery asphalt

this time of year was made for icy snow
but the sun is there to great me
rays tenderly flowing down
loosening my improvised piece of clothe
until it falls and sticks to the ground
covering it in a dusty grip

season’s greetings
while I stand there unveiled
and bathe in the sunlight
