    Always shines (on TV)

    These skis, these boots
    Suck my feet down
    Toward tipp-exed slopes

    We cuddle together
    While ice winds blow
    Oblivion onto our skin

    Our ski suits chafe,
    Peaks sparkle ahead
    Like disco queens

    Our nostrils are jammed
    By goggles and frosted breath
    And endless chances

    This evening, Kirsten, maybe
    I’ll try and stick my tongue
    Into your mouth

    And somewhere, a-ha
    Keep pretending the sun
    Always shines on TV

    A bit cold a poem, Dieter! It looks as if winter does its best to 'tipp-ex slopes' and freeze your tongue! well written. Thank you!

    (ah,and your subtle irony re the shining sun (on TV)!

    Thanks a lot, Bar22do; in fact it's a nostalgic teenage memory of the 80s (when I still tried to convince myself that to French-kiss Kirstens and other Julies and Sabines was the thing for me) Haven't been skiing ever since, I'm afraid, and loads of ski-fans have sighed with relief, too.
