my culture is a blizzard, low
visibility everything,

it is thick sheets of ice to slip on
hard enough to break

cold snow to cause loss
of feeling in far digits and many

fun to make angels and skate!

my culture is a swift blanket
over stone and foliage
a princely cape lain over soft ground

for safe passage
of young ladies
in old stories

my culture is a long, hot second.
ungiving ungenerous unstudied
by anthropologists

my culture does well
at recreation most of the time it takes
first prize

my culture is the tallest wall
it holds everything in
it doesn’t sound very good
does it

it doesn’t feel very good

it doesn’t feel very much
like anything
