"She would be brave. She would be heroic. She would make her own destiny." -- from Winter by Marissa Meyer

Came on when I most expected it.

You spend enough time in a place,

You soon learn to understand its sky.

How it swells and groans like the grinding of rocks

And smells of old wood and electricity.

How it holds its breath before

Release, sounding like stones smacking aluminum

Drenching grass and dirt and sunlight.

How sharp its temper is midafternoon, letting

The world burn with anticipation

Of its next electric strike.

I remember fearing it would be me.

I remember hot excitement.
