Why I Love the Cold

by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash

Vests are like body armor.

Loop a scarf to cover the scars.

Slim yourself down in dark jeans.

Mummy your fingers in wool.

Greasy hair? Grab a hat.

Zip up your coat against the wind.

This winter, you can mask your greatest insecurity.

Keep out the air, the discomfort, the stares.

Maybe the reason I love the cold

Is because it allows me to hide.
