“snowflakeSN”







darkening more

and more in morning light,

one crow

 

 

 








snow melt . . .

her only footprint

touches the earth

 

 

 

 


holding her umbilical cord

at the middle . . .

each end already taken

 


“darkening more” & “snow melt” – Acorn 2005

“umbilical cord” – Presence 2005

days
become months
become years . . .
in moonlight
my beer stays cold


 


 





drunks stumble in and out of her
like cartoon characters—
wet with fallen leaves
this dark road home


 


 


 


peeking into
this wormhole in my apple
I see a poet
thirty years from now
still dressed like a plumber


 


 


 


at my age
falling in love
with the person
she thought I was—
autumn graveyard


 


“snowflakeSN”


 


 


yesterday
I bought myself a new hat
with ear flaps . . .
today, myriad thoughts
muffle the falling snow


 


 


 





one lone cricket
louder than all the others—
not one of us
has ever found the words
to comfort the living
