Winter 2022


the world is still

air and taut sky

the blue of frostbite

a thin winter rain

liquid seized

into crystals

a solute settled out

atop frozen soil

amid puddles hardening

into milky slates of glass

silence layers itself

deep and deeper

what icy promise

could these days hide

and when and how

could we hasten the thaw
