Winter Heart


The weather girl
says the high tomorrow
will be 110,
no one's surprised
it's hot again.
The heat comes,
the heat goes,
it's not news,
if everyone 
already knows.

She makes it sound 
like something's
different this time,
some big change 
in the air,
when it's only
summer following
spring, soon to be
followed by the fall,
nothing new, really,
to touch your winter
heart, at all.
