1. THE WEATHER

    has already 
    gotten colder.
    Today is shorter
    than yesterday.
    I have no pack.
    No clothes.
    Soon it will be
    the whitest day
    of the year.
    I will be wearing
    nothing but my 
    snow shoes.
    My hands are 
    tied together.
    If I reach up
    past the tree line,
    birds will
    tear my fingernails.
    If I put my hands 
    too low, they
    could be mistaken
    for black bears.
    I appreciate 
    when you let me
    read down to you
    from my tree limb,
    from my burning nest
    of paperback books.
    I like watching you
    pile together a small
    mountain of lotion
    in your good hand.
    The one that’s 
    a bit smaller 
    than a hook.
    The one with the
    bright red drum
    in its palm.
