M Frost

Julie's body in salmon rapture
a little known but serious condition
She has dinner & I have dessert
An ice sculptor says Nice Hat

A big scary man says Say hello
to the big M & we don't know
if he's the big M or if the big M
is a place he thinks we're headed

This is the last of the undercooked
fish   My luck is running out
I can feel it   My luck is running out
of places to sled    Welcome

to Lake Defrost    It's hot enough
to walk inside a sweater &
your kids will never feel ice
outside a cold drink &

will only see their breath
in print or with a cigarette
The wilderness goes on forever
but forever ends with fired ice
