It’s heating up now,
The war ‘tween you and me.
Don’t expect no snow
To calm the raging sea.
You started a cold war
But there’s nothing with such energy
As the warm blood of a sore
Heart that’s beating inside of me.
Inspired by the song “Cold War” by Janelle Monae. See what Dylan Hughes saw in this excellent song in the short story Temper and Temperance.
