Antarctica

by Amanda Conlogue

arctic streams of air
flow through me
ripple against my skin
I've never been so cold
blue-veined hands are burned
frost bitten, and the noise
filtered from the street
leaves me in a squall of silence
blinded by flurries that melt
on my exposed face
I feel frozen with the weight
of ice bearing down on me
I am a glacier, toiling
to cross an icy tundra
no warmth in sight
