Snow

i keep trying to make a list

of things that happen here in the winter

like the way your hair smells like snow

when you come in from work

 

but being australian

i feel ill-equipped to describe snow

in all its forms

 

the way you do

when you encounter it

on the street

at home

in pop culture

 

i only know that

i don’t feel so cold

when my arm is around your arm

and my hand is in the pocket

of your coat
