if winter comes

Fresh snow has fallen on the mountains
skiers will colonize the roads for days
we prefer to stay in the lowlands
visit cafes, sit in the communal table,
have literary discussion with others
about the fresh gossip of the day.

We don’t mind the mild chill of winter.
When we get home
I like the way you banish
our scarves and light layers
with incantations.
