The air is thick, almost liquid,
heavy with the cold
You can feel the weight of it
as you breathe.. the pressure
as it expands from the heat of your throat,
the core remaining cold until
it hits your lungs - a solid mass
that breaks apart into shards that
chill you further, chill you to the bone.

MyBoot, because Craig said he'd
have a new 'Futon' chapter up soon.
