I’m standing here naked

My nipples hard against the cold

In this place I am exposed


I need some cover; a place to hide

I want a cape to wrap myself in

Something to make me feel warm again


The rain falls cold all round me

Forming muddy puddles at my feet

Showing me where I have been


Tomorrow this ground will be frozen

Making beautiful crystalline patterns for all to see

I must move my unclothed body from here


And look for shelter; from the unforgiving elements

I cannot move, I am paralyzed

I do not want anyone to see me here … naked
