When the Weather Breaks


I wonder sometimes,
if less crime is committed
in the dead of winter?

Do thieves and murderers
choose to stay inside
where it's warm
and wait for the weather to break?

If that is so
then I will move to Siberia

but then,
men are angry there too
because they have no food
and icicles cling to their beards

so that won't work

I should just forget about
the angry people
and maybe . . .
they'll forget about me.
