Shiki Kukai, February 2013; assigned topic "cover"

This is a ku about apartment living, especially where the thermostat is set by an external force, giving the residents no control over the heat levels in the apartment. Or, welcome to my world.

Oh yes, I lived in a place like that for a while - half the year we froze, the other half we sweated - the heating bore little relation to the seasons.
