They Called Me Cardie

because of my bright red parka
and black ski mask
a chubby shadow
engraved in the snow
while my sled sped
downhill
alone


(for the Living Poetry Visual Prompt and Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt.)

    Was the sled red too
    That sped away from you
    In your snow bed for two
    And red-faced you waved adieu

    It took me a minute to work that out – you came off your sledge?
    While you were there, recumbent – did you make angels?
