Poem 20160116

she wrapped the scarf
around his neck
and then around her own

the red scarf
was long enough
and the weather
cool enough
to warrant such a thing

no need to bundle up
under the full weight
no need to bear it
all on her own

so much better to
share the warmth
to create a short
woolen bridge
between them
as they sat and watched
the sun go down
