Hot flash morning
snowy cold milk kisses my neck
Prepping for the road

Thinking of a pill bug ball up
cozy on the couch
Hookie from the test

black shapes appear to disappear
in thick white air
Ready for the ride

Home now
I lay watching
a cloudless blue afternoon
from the birdless window

High above me
luminescent tree leaf star shine
caught fallen from fog
Look what we can do!
Don’t you worry one bit.
