The scarf

It was the cold I dreaded most
when I was leaving
frozen in the street, the silence
swallowing my steps

I remembered them again
as I put my scarf around my neck
tonight

no matter how much I try
I can’t keep warm.

  1. I loved the sound of ‘the silence swallowing my steps’-great image and alliteration.
