Year 2: Day 146 – Ice Queen

Objects must be handled very slowly now,
low lights and sounds, no sudden movements.
The Ice Queen is wrapped up in paper towels
trying desperately to keep her shape.

The order of things is stunted now,
a hiatus of reason in effect;
so delicately she gathers her skirts around-
the Ice Queen has begun to melt.

The pools around her feet are growing now,
uncertain to where they’ll drain
but the pressing matter now is that
the Ice Queen has begun to melt.
