Warmth
©2000 by Coco F.L.

I'm so damn warm right now,
I can't even think
I'm flushed with blush
For no reason but invisible shame

What am I to shame about
I haven't done anything
The thermostat's on high
When the temperature's 75.

Warmth is good and great
But not when you're afraid
Of being near the heater
Being in the sun.

Don't get near me
Don't touch me!
Don't warm me
Let me lie in the dark!

Let me feel the cool, damp floor
And let me see the cool rain
On my fingertips...
With you holding the umbrella.
