snow builds power in
every crevice, on every
surface, we can sit

back and watch the contortions and
wonder how it does it so cold

when the first order

when the first order
of business
is learning how
to turn people
away, power
presses into the lining
of our stomach,
building up
an appetite

even in childhood,
we never found the bridge that
connected summer

to fall – perhaps someone did
and rightly boarded it up

sooner or later,

sooner or later,
or for some time already,
we will find ourselves
in the same shoes, one
against the faceless
many who conjure
corporate legalese
that secures them
a place at the table –
in the board room,
we are all little men,
forgetting
and unforgetting
we do this to ourselves

the standard orchids

the standard orchids
they offered in
condolence is in full
bloom.
each bud appears
to be on
board, making its
seemingly windswept
way to light
with such
sad perfection,
a joyless
footnote
to the story
of your passing
