Close This Winter   Leave a comment


close this cold house
this eating morning eggs with oven door open
dinner next to the wood stove
parceling out wood like Mother Hubbard

long winter on these white legs
bones whiter still
come sun
burn me spot me with age
before winter swells my middle finger joint

come sun take this slow winter
from these white bones
