(1/10/15 @ Anglin Falls)

Bound at uneven angles,
piled at the base
of the falls among
hemlock and beech,
the ice rises
like bread, its yeast of solid
form conforms to the physics
of overhang

This cold sculpture
leaves lessons
in how it can cause 
trees to fall
into crevices and over
boulders: a million years
to make this common
place where matter
expresses its states

Winter stones me,
throws me over the edge
into the abyss
0f the coming thaw
