Winter Recessional


Winter Recessional

The ground remains too frozen to dig deep for reason.
There is spotlighting from passing pick-ups...
deer entrails in roadside ditches.

Enormous old, rusted-out combines:
clouds billow eastward... much larger than Walmart cows.

Is it enough to use knowledge for momentary relief
from domestic complications?  Prescription drugs...
side effects: grey skin, blue skin, blotchy lips,
water retention, pimples, boils, loss of humor, stroke.

What we know is largely the result of apologies:
gold-bill magpies sweep down to clean up yesterday...
homemade spaghetti on death-yellow backyard grass.
