Its importance reverberated

in the back of my mind

as the day began to unwind.


constantly remind


myself to carry it


but paradoxically

brushing it aside.



I said



But as the clock

struck midnight

later that night,

I stood,

freezing in its absence .


By all measure

an experience now forever

inscribed into memory.


Always carry your sweater

if your travelling around midnight.
