After a full year
of gazing out, one morning
I open my door --
to a thin snowfall, frozen --
the far edge of loneliness.

I’m trying not to be so antisocial
Truth be told, I’m not entirely hopeful
I’ve woken up on one too many floors
But my favourite was yours

Say even that this complete simplicity
Stripped on of all one's torments, concealed
The evilly compounded, vital I
And made it fresh in a world of white,
A world of clear water, brilliant-edged,
Still one would want more, one would need more,
More than a world of white and snowy scents.

- The Poems of Our Climate, Wallace Stevens

Thy sting is not so sharp
As a friend remembered not.

Inklings of the storm,

of a creeping frost,
an imminent fall,
a futile cry

A soft breeze with the slippery concrete black and full of muddy slush, contrasting with the hoarfrost, clean and hung on a tunnel of silent shivering trees (the ones you said you'd like to be), and the birds that screamed at the sun now buried deep down below the ground, beneath the snow, I press my shoulder to this wall between us.
