Jack of the Frosts

going to Alaska in a week

as a kid I often dreamt
about the place

walking through the dreamy frosts
and living like a hermit in
some shack that still had warmth
but looked out on the snowy wastes
like a kindly old woman

going there now
with naught but a suitcase of clothes
my laptop
phone
other electronics
and books to read on the plane

Iím more concerned about
deep vein thrombosis
and whether my debit card will work

thatís adulthood I suppose
