running backwards on an ice pond
swimming in concrete as it dries
listening with noise-blocking headphones
driving at night without headlights

catching snowflakes in the desert
playing a CD on the burner of the stove
flying a kite made of uranium
aluminum foil painted in gold

campfires lit with frostbite
a ballet without any dancers
when asked to describe what love is
these are my logical answers.
