3 Minutes by Lexi Leigh

It’s snowing in Los Angeles
the women on the sidewalk
wrap their bare arms around
their silicone chests and shiver
shiver shiver down the street

Cigarettes are lit
and enjoyed
because sometimes
smoking in the sun
is just too fucking hot

Your Bentley your Mercedes your Prius
Your Honda your Jimmy your motorcycle your scooter your bike
are all getting fucking wet

Pick up the pace
your mascara is sliding down your cheeks
Hurry past the fender benders downtown
Remember to pump your breaks when it gets icy

If it gets icy

People on the streets are huddled together
This is not why we live here

It’s snowing in Los Angeles
