In Chicago, 

                  the wind charges 

between                      buildings

               Wrigley Field Christmas

Market                       Orbit Gum

Ad on LED lights which says something like "having confidence and always winning"—

My uncle takes a picture of me:

I stand there alone wearing my orange and blue beanie from the 80s

I had just thrown a cup away which held my mulled wine

in the garbage

My hand freezing held the souvenir mug, yet to be drunk from, sitting cold in my jacket pocket. I then wanted gum or blaring lights in my teeth.
