she wanted yesterday back

she couldn’t feel it
she knew she should
but there was nothing
just her breath
creating a cloud
she could hear her breath
but the outside world
no longer mattered
like it didn’t exist

she walked the noon path
as they always used to
only she was alone
so alone it didn’t matter
she was naked
she just was
and the hibernating animals
didn’t care

the ice was supposed to be cold
she couldn’t remember if it was
forming or melting
and the point was empty for her

she walked to embrace
silence
she walked to put distance
between herself and the
dreadful device
that brought the news

she wanted yesterday back
