I sit inside, hovering over my book with a cup of coffee beside the lamp. My eyes begin to droop, so I take a sip of coffee, lean back against my chair and stretch my arms out. I peer out the window and watch the bleakness of the outside. Someone deep within my psyche is telling me that I want to go for a walk. I argue that it is too cold but he insists. I oblige.
I step out into the deep snow and begin my trek, stomping across the snowy dunes that seem to stretch out past the universe’s end but are anything but infinite. I let out a long sigh; as I breathe in I taste the whiteness of my surroundings and note its salty tinge. I make my way towards the beach.
Seagulls are frozen in place above me, preserved as shining white amulets in the sky. I reach for one and break its neck between my fingers, putting its head into my pocket. Sand pours out from where its head used to be and turns into snow as it meets the ground. I toss the body forward as it melts from its little ice prison and the headless seagull flies off into the clouds, free.
As I come closer to the ocean I can hear its breathing. The waves float across the surface of the water, turning to ice as it meets the frosty beachside. I see a naked child sitting in the middle of the ocean, holding the arm of a naked man whose wide-open eyes seem to follow me with every step I take. The man is shivering. The child, scooping up some ocean water, pours it over the man’s eyes, nose, and mouth; as it makes contact with the man’s face, the water freezes his features in place. The child pushes the man under the water and begins walking towards me. I reach into my pocket and throw the seagull’s frozen head at the child; he catches it and eats it, spitting out the chunks of ice back into the sea. As he steps onto the beach the ocean becomes completely solid, frozen in place like the rest of the world. I take the child’s arm and notice that I am naked. I smile for the first time as we walk through the snowy dunes together as one person.
