welcome for a birthday bash lady


Temperatures here minus 11 degrees Celsius
but feels like minus 20 degrees
with wind-chill
come along you will have coffee with me
cold still cappuccino
for 3 dollars only
iced not in snow
but fridge

welcomes the poet fraternity
at twenty minutes passed midnight
to feel the minus 30 chill
bring a blanket or woolen quilt...
If you are not strong built
