windows open season

Windows open season
has come to the north
bringing to the denizens
of the muffled world
the freedom
to step outside in sandals
let skin breathe
and allow the unfettered
display of tattoos
and body piercings.

With the media
tuned down
newly emerging survivors
of winter can
hear the words of the birds
until the beat on the street
plays its tattoo
or the drone on the phone
and pierces the ears

That attack
cloaks the world in
a dreary sameness
brings winter back
into the heart of
windows open season.
