so you look through an O

Look through an X on a frosted tic-tac-toe  window
And the world seems rigid and unforgiving
So you look through an O
Moving your head around you complete
the circle view
You find yourself
Dizzy
By the fire
with a coat in your hand

Out in the cold
You retrace the game
With a frozen index finger
The fire looks just as inviting
From the X
From the O

Memorize the pattern

And fall back in the snow
Arms and legs spread
X

Jump up and ball yourself up
Fall down into
O

This is a great tower
Fallen into dust

Frozen
melted
Trampled

Hidden
In your heart
