Under

aqua skies,
an aqua house,
between, fence
and eyes
peering
through.
Slumbering, snow
dreams…

Winter has come

Speckled,
watching
the slumbering
town.
Winter’s first,
caress-
a smattering,
powder
greeting,
announcing,
I have,
arrived.

Black Diamond Bow

Verdant streaks as powder
rises, whoosh, whoosh
beneath silver skies-
tumbling- icy fingers,
stretching,
into
woolen garb-shivering
sliding, avalanche of
limbs. Then,
stop.

In, and out. In,
and out. Heaving vapors-
dazed, by the blue.
Snow man
rises. Spectrum
shimmering, kissing
the powdered virgin-
blushing firs, twinkling couple.

Whoosh, whoosh-
powder
falls.

Nineteen ninety eight

Where does it come from?
The pain within,
I feel it inside me.
More inside me than any human thing.

It swells and roars and it will not go away.
I plead,
cry,
hold it close.

In the snow,
alone,
naked,
feeling.

Feeling the pain from the snow,
numb.
Erupting inside.
Inside me, the pain,
flaring,
throbbing.

Rising
I soar;
distracted,
within the drug.
The pain is still there.
Burning,
tearing, clawing.

Inside you,
I feel you.
Sweat mingling.
I ache,
longing.
I still feel the pain.

Then.
night,
alone,
alone with the pain.
I hold it tight,
knowing,
I’m alive.
