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

x

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

x

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

x

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

I should just put on a sweater at night.
