Coats

LINNEA COMES ALONG,  

Though contrary to her name of flowers

As she swoops into you as like a blizzard and somehow peels back those layers

Of winter jacket

That you have struggled to wrap around yourself

Just to keep warm at night.  

She tears away those wrappings,

But still,

She keeps you warm.

So when she proposes softly,

so that you barely hear,

that you should wrap your jacket back again,

if only for a while

You flinch, and tear away.
