My Normal Attire

A Letter To Winter

The last two winters have been cold ones
Not cold ones like a cold beer
But cold like I have to think about whether I’m safe
Going out in my shorts and flip-flops, as usual
For what would happen should my truck break down
Even in the city it might be dangerous to wear
My normal attire, even to change a tire




An art and photography publication focused on visual narrative in storytelling.
