A Prose Poem

By Erin Jamieson

The ice fills my lungs, makes me forget to breathe. My home is overflowing w/ cold, the kind of cold that buries inside of you, that makes you forget these nights are not endless, that makes you remember that, in fact, you yourself are endless

& this is not a burden so much as a relief
