Hot or cold?

Do I prefer being hot or cold
The former i guess, if I were old
Fans whirring
ice slurping
stone as cold as can be

Cold floors to lie on
Swimming pools to dive in
The cold cold sea

Cotton dresses,
Sun glasses
Sweat trickling free

Water fights
Sound nice
When you're as hot as can be

Forty f.cking five degrees.
Or minus 2 and freeze freeze freeze

There is an advantage to being cold
Snuggle together and start being bold
However my throat has never recovered
From 2nd Jan when it was deflowered

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
Last few words: 
Stimulated by JC s comment on babies dying from heat
Editing stage: 


I liked your poem
though after the summer we are having
I dont think I could handle this heat every year

its debilitating luckly we are having some rain
so its humid but its not as hot as its been

sorry to ramble on the heat I am just sick of it LOL !!

for you
else many will misunderstand
what you want to convey


but please don't be coy. This is an adult site, don't say f.cking, say fucking. You know you can and it is more real and satisfying. And 'From 2nd Jan when it was deflowered' say it 'From second Jan when it was deflowered', maybe even say it in full, to add weight
From the second of January
when it was deflowered

Am I nitpicking? Yes, certainly, there's nothing else to do with this insouciant poem with a strong ending. The small changes would make a big difference.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'

But my mum taught me never to swear even though you are right sometimes I wish to say it in full xx
