christmas ain’t the only reason (to celebrate the season)

there are people who hate winter
because it is cold, especially snow
i have to stop myself reminding them
that summer sears curses from their lips
tattoos skin into sidewalks and
makes an enemy of blue skies

that it’s actually colder without snow
and that there is nothing quieter
or cleaner, or more hopeful
than the morning after a blizzard.
