winter is inferior

I try to see beauty
in every season
HOWEVER
I can't use my porch without freezing
It's too fucking dark
      too fucking early
and the only decent part
of this
  MISERABLE 
     FUCKING 
        SEASON
is the holidays
So!
I will
(attempt to)
shut my pie hole
until the merriment
turns into the gray sludge
of the rest of winter
I'll drink and eat and cry and sleep
until the sun finds me
again
until the trees bush out
again
until I can sit
on the warm front steps
and dream of alternate endings.
