It reached -4 in southampton today! ❄️❄️❄️ .
baby steps on glitter ball pavement,
the ice has arrived
and made tinsel of the concrete,
early morning work
for nervous feet.
ballet of sparkled-smoke breath
rising high in the air,
around your ears.
joined hand in hand
we walk surely through the snowstorm
and join december
in seeing out another year.
