Blizzard of Gin



Blizzard of Gin


Attributed to the reapportion blizzard of Gin

Back pocket of her trousers full of snow

Preconceived from no points of control

Glimmer of candle light reflection on blue skin

Music from Emmy’s frozen Violin

Pharmaceutical chemist on Ski Patrol

Semitransparent Semicircular Polar Ice

Entering softly candle lighted Berlin Snow Cap

Man reappeared else-where in the storm

Carbon and Hydrogen free union Blindfold

She knelt on one knee before the Ice Robot

Pulled from her vest’s inner pocket a parched billfold

Compressed her hat against his gut in the wing gust

To enter or not to enter the Centerfold of this story
