just steps from the house

the hollows of my cheeks freeze —

the dogs press onward

another dead mouse

in the recycling bin —

I cry for lost lives

scrubbed clean of its clouds

today’s flawless sky isn’t

warm but raw and cold

..

.

we sit and wait

watching soap and snow melt

against the windshield

.

suddenly it’s dusk

and yet it took forever

to get to this car

.

driving we see things

that aren’t ourselves –

windows lit soft orange

.

trees hang with white

so comfortably as if

they were penciled in

.

Finally people

surround us and we eat

tasting everything

.

yesterday’s puddles
froze overnight — spring is trapped
like my baby dreams

The temperature drops.

The rafters pop. The roof groans.

We bake mac-n-cheese.

I suck in cold air.

The roof of my mouth tingles

with February.

the dogs pee outside —

my fingers on the frosted

door pane make flowers

knuckles is the first to feel

twice today I dropped

my keys in parking lot slush —

bursts of winter sun
