Dripping Winter

In the darkness of the thaw
I hear a pained lashing wind.

The snow sinks back,
curls over
foetal.

The dry sparkle,
the elegant lightness
in the cups of trees
now sloshed empty.

Troll black night hangs
with a violet glower in its eyes,

its languid breath
deepening over the white expanse.

The next day unwritten,
all plans washed slate-clean
in the trickling calliope.
