gone with the winter wind

February 24, 2007

as the blizzard begins, i
tilt back a large glass of
Merlot, dark red
dark
snow is hissing on the window pane
Scarlett O’Hara
dressed in velvet curtains
but the snow doesn’t fall
at Tara.
Rhett Butler is,
i think,
far more attractive
than Ashley Wilkes ever could be.
it’s really snowing,
it’s really going
my lips have turned
the color of eggplants,
laughing richly
on a Saturday night.
