The Long-Running Poem Series About the Winter of 2006 Continues Like This

January 12, 2006
Can’t believe I haven’t mentioned the warm bag

before now

For my birthday
Bill got me
a miniature
hot water bottle
in a lamb’s wool cover
of pale yellow
pale green
and pale blue

we call it the warm bag
and it is fantastic
I don’t know why hot water bottles aren’t sweeping the nation

if we’re being honest
it doesn’t even really ever get all that cold around here
and yet your little feet sure can be darn chilly
by the time you put them into your bed at night

And it is beyond delightful
to rest them on or near the bag
and have them all heated up
for you
