Under the ice.

The cold leaks in
invading the skin
straight to the bone
it’s freezing
and the toes are icing over
as the body shivers
and the goosebumps inhabit
and grow
as the cold
becomes colder
and the entirety of self freezes
and as another approaches
centuries later
finding a perfectly kept body
under the ice
they begin to chisel
and break it apart
opening the cranium
and reviving what once was.

Thanks for reading.
