walk with me into the polar night
cold is the new heat
[didn’t you know?]
you like to watch blood penetrating the snow
do you want to touch it?

the climate will change
the oceans shall rise above our chins
and turn our fur to white
the sun shall linger under the horizon
patiently restrained by strings of darkness
[the sun shall never come up!]

walk behind me, the winds are strong here
I will teach you the language of killing
the peek-a-boo with fear
 the waiting under the ice  
[do what you’re told!]

you will learn me
when crawling is about to begin
you will shiver
when the edelweiss bursts through the skin
beneath the claw
like a frostbite
