Colorado cold air makes my teeth hurt...


...when it is 

three below zero 
in Summit County.  

At 3 a.m. this morning 
it was so cold 
you could hear 
the air pop.  

The largest full moon 
I have ever seen 
was suspended 
over the Ten Mile Range 
and it was so quiet 
that you could 
actually hear 
the quiet..  

The Blue River 
east of my house 
never freezes.  

Never freezes 
as it continues it's trek 
to the mighty Colorado River 
north of my place 
and then 
to the Gulf of California.  

Running water.  

Running away from the snow 
and the cold 
of Colorado 
to lap on some warm beach 
near Guaymas 
populated by people 
from Colorado 
trying to 
get the minus three degree cold 
from their bones.
