sleigh ride

fur hat
leather straps
the scar below your mouth

firm hands
winter lands
no shadow of a doubt

soft snow
grey cold
hooves upon thin ice

secret touch
double dutch
gods that roll the dice

hot breath
sudden death
a distant lover’s call

heart beats
boots with cleats
be careful not to fall
