it’s easy to lose

it’s easy to lose
yourself in
the best seconds
of the day, stretched
like taffy
in new hands

somewhere in Lansing,

somewhere in Lansing,
you are stocking up on
clean, fresh snow
to spice things up,
a fitting breakfast
for the day after

before the arresting

(for F.N., during taffy-pulling October)

before the arresting
winter, take the city
sharply between
your fingers, pull
and twist it, stretch
it into the light
until it takes on
the most
delicious
sheen
, then
give it a hard
and chewy
bite
before folding
it into late
November
