Code Blue by tony baksa





2 degrees
real feel minus 6 - outside
inside real feel
warm and cozy

staying home
grateful
diversions
aplenty
                                              

TV news
cold snap continues
not for me
warm diversions - aplenty

a giddy feeling
prevails
weatherman says
"code blue" - code blue?
                                              

homeless herded
into shelters
borrowed warmth
just for the night

some soup
a cot
a blanket
then sleep

out at 8 am
real feel
COLD
a long day ahead
                                            

a chill sweeps
over my contentment
desperately grateful
cherished home

code blue
a cruel signal
of charity
temporary warmth

out at 8 am
a long
cold
day again

real feel
sad
real feel
thankful

code blue
cold
blue
prevails

  5. Can I just say what a relief to search out someone who
    really knows what theyre talking about on the internet.
    You positively know the way to convey an issue and make it important. More folks need to learn this. You undoubtedly have the gift.
