Snow Troubles

stuck!
on the pinnacle of a jump
on Thanksgiving
in the back yard with my cousin.

heaving, ho-ing, over and over,
until, in a final effort
we fell.

down into the slush,
cold,
in my shirt,
on my skin like a disease.
grainy,
like sand
and ice just thawed.
miserable,

at least until dinner.
