Wear Shoes When Enameling

She knew the temperature was hot

it’s what was sought

to melt the glass

do not use brass

Sprinkled particles on copper

melded proper

kiln did bake it

time to exit

just when her piece passes the door

brooch falls on floor

I told you so—

burning the toe

Wear Shoes When Enameling

Can’t Get Warm

Things that make me shiver—

a windchill temperature

of minus degrees

sharp cutting edge

of the freeze

Things that make me shiver—

a covid booster in winter

feeling cold to the bone

can’t get warm

shivered so hard

I thought I’d have a seizure


dVerse prompt to write a quadrille using the word shiver.
