Sky-blue Cadillac

Day 19 PAD Challenge. Prompt: A "love" poem or an "anti-love" poem.

blanket of snow tucked across the
highway and you, and I, in a
dream together, you, in that
sky-blue Cadillac, ever the

wishing for warm feet

and--love you--yes I did, with
the whiteness of the snow, the
blueness of the eye that first
beheld you

until I woke, word-weighted, weary,
tired to the bone, diagramming
your sentences endlessly
