Winter Wonderland?

Abel Vasquez-Osuna

Isn’t it fun?

Waking up to thaw out your feet

after walking through,

the toxic gray morning mist?

Isn’t it fun?

Being late, because you had to scrape

the new shiny layer of pearl white paint

off your car?

Isn’t it fun?

Asking shady strangers

to push your car because it doesn’t know

how to slide on ice?

I can’t wait

for the most wonderful time of the year

to come again and bring the beat red face

of my dad as he looks out his window!

I can’t wait! Can you?
