Close The Window

Darling, I have good news! The Guinness book

Of World Records called. We’ve been awarded

the title of coldest apartment! Look,

I’m sorry I have complained. Some poor kid


In Africa or maybe Mexico

Would kill to have their home this cold, but don’t

you think we’re hogging it? It all could go

to other apartments who I think won’t


mind having their temperature go down

a degree or two. We could even turn

on the heat, and have a laugh around town

about how silly it is. We could burn


some of my books. What’s that? I guess you’re right.

I should just put on a sweater at night.
