Post workout after walking the dog,
Still in my gear, it’s nearly dry,
Shorts, a t-shirt, a flannel added for warmth,
But it isn’t helping,
Nineteen outside, no melting today,
Cold inside, coffee is already cold, fingers stiff.
A two-hour delay,
The roads are supposed to be bad.
It wasn’t true, I checked earlier,
They hardly ever seem bad anymore
Brining or something,
A steamy shower is calling.
