Somehow winter hosts the clearest nights

nights when the stars burn and light chills
chilling suspended in the blank air exposed
exposing little reality of expansion
expanding of the unimaginable-unending fire

and somehow arms wrapping around me
and somehow the smell of chocolate steam
and somehow the pine and snow mixed on my tongue
and somehow the freezing tingle of your warmth

somehow infinitely far from my skin
