swallowed sound
as suddenly as calm was lost
trees became music
weighed with the tongue of cold
if there is one time I should think
letting go and lying down
to bathe in clarinet wonder
it would be after ice
has swept clear our pretense
that we are in control
that our little lives are not
at best
fragile
liable to
freeze and thaw
by the whim of storm

    1. OMG you are SO right my friend! That is EXACTLY what it is! I agree. Some people really do believe it doesn’t happen unless you almost ‘ask for it’ and that by talking about anything real you’ll have it happen … yep that (shakes head) really (shakes head) bothers me!
