303. Night, and Flaking

Slaty night
settling into

place or it

Perspective
is personal

and individually
we are constant

unended
or up

Vision of

or more)

reduced
in slats of deepening

delicate and scattered
snowflakes

On a cheek
less than a kiss

Breeze of

so quietly

there is no notice to it

Icy snow
in piles

seems what
is frozen

tho this night
too and walk

upon

the frozen
ground

I am smaller
than a maple

(you might
imagine it)

yet not
perpetual

It loses its branches
in the slotted night

Butterknife
pain in wrist
from writing

so writing comes
as a way

of darkening

page
the recognition
of snow

or pure
cognition

the one time
of it

Constant it is

as everything
resembles

Compact
and nightly

held as if
in a hand

could hold
it not a snow’s

flake come
black

but dark

enough that
the snow’s

gone and
turned

to slipping
down & thru

slightly

salty

(the taste
of one’s

own

lips

&

the

all about

it
