Spoiler:
This turned into a collab rather than a post and then reply so Derez and I are shaking things up. Also, he was afraid I was taking all the credit because he's insecure - I am slightly so.


I.

Spilled coffee
it just soaks in her rug and she turns
another page of Plath
winter nights, reflecting
it’s entrance like vanilla cream--
december twenty one--
‘we can make this Christmas special for you’
she doesn’t know anything other than Americano black
irregular mutterings of Plath suffering under her breath
they gather dust;

stealing winter nights
personalised with themes
of tasteful clothes, louboutin on the toes,
versace on the nose,
gorgeous city lights

tucked, into fire coated living rooms,
alone.
plath in hand
coffee in hand,
Winter in hand
december 21
‘Happy Birthday Zarah’
goodnight.

II.

Morning, thick americano coats her clothing
Zarah is aching,
headache dull,
- nine-seventeen -
her hair spilling onto her calendar red coat -
december twenty-second -
snow’s no show outside.

the dew pricks up, no longer crisp,
no sun to seek her
‘Winter’s inviting you.’

her feet, cold,
there is no snow to blind her,
she returns inside.
winter has crept in.
