Catching Up to GloPoWriMo 2017, Day 27: The Ice Cubes

It sends out a cold smoke
And the smoke fades away.
It hurts me like a poke.
It sends today away
As it makes me so cool
Like the Arctic's in school.

Until it freezes me
So I don't feel nothing.
The sun I can still see,
The heat I'm not feeling.
And it melts in my mouth
Like the current goes south.

Making a hot day cold.
I can freeze in its hold;
I am noisy, I'm told.

As I try to finish
Faster than it can melt
Because this I don't wish,
The frozen cheeks I felt
Are gone and what is here
Is coolness to be near.

(Note: My first book, "An Unknown Narrator," is now available on Kindle, Inktera, Kobo, Apple iBooks, Draft2Digital, CreateSpace, Barnes & Noble, Scribd, Tolino, and 24Symbols. It's also on Smashwords, but I'm still organizing its files there. The only thing I finished on Smashwords is my interview. These are the things I've been working on since early this year. That's why I haven't been appearing in social media. Here's a little tip for young writers who want to self-publish: be prepared for a lot of tax forms.

By the way, I plan to take a month-long vacation from blogging because I need to recover from all the Writing Sprints, and I still need to organize the links of my book. I should create a universal link for "An Unknown Narrator" soon. I also need to publish my next book, "From the Human Chain."

Thank you for accompanying me in this live blogging journey through April. See you again soon.)
