When I leave for a walk
I shrink with every turn
of the staircase
until I am merely as big as the city.
I Take a Walk in Order to Shrink
Can you imagine if people swore off driving the first time they spun out on the ice or were late to something important due to a traffic jam?
Looking Up, 1/20/11
We are so done with winter
But the crust of cold is safe
in its own way.
No one expects us to grow anything
in frozen ground
