An Oklahoma Winter
An Oklahoma Winter

In anticipation of snow
my Grandmother cocooned me
in layers of warm wool,
bundled me in strata of socks,
sweaters,
leggings,
slacks,
mittens,
coats,
head scarves,
and ear muffs
to protect me
from the arctic cold
of an Oklahoma winter.

In anticipation of snow,
I inhaled the crisp morning air,
and savoring the frigid succulence
I waited for the first white flakes
to melt on my extended tongue.
