Day 25 – Write a poem that includes all of the following words: pistachio, ink, pebble, weather, varnish.
N O V E M B E R
Even the word itself is depressing –
Cold winds, pebble sized hail…
I try to peer out of my window
But it seems to be covered in ink.
The weather is fucking devious!
Let’s say rains a lot
And then there’s this one
Really Cold Night
And the next morning
Everything looks as if covered in
A thick layer of varnish
Except it is ice.
Ice ice baby…
No crampons? Good luck!
Better stay indoors,
Find that packet of pistachios
You bought last week but forgot
And devour its contents in one go.
You’ll feel better, I promise.
