turn on your porch light
peek in my window
a cold woman finds your humor refreshing

like a gin and tonic
on a hot summer day

better than a spotlight
that beams across a frozen lawn
leading you to my walkway

your assumption is correct
I am in the dark
take that into consideration
when I play castanets, perform feats of strength
and build the perfect hearth

to get hugs and kisses
from you

the warm light glows through the window shade
