Winter Lashing with its Tail



Brown spotted hands cracked in spring-less winter
Bent over skinfolds, hairier hair parts ripen with frostbite
Hunching over steering wheels on black black roads
While public restrooms whisper, hiding in mirror-full corridors

He tables her leaning, her elbow brittle and leafless
Stretched blue hospital gowns flap open and fluorescent
Her screaming white fingers wait under a thin sheet of ice
An oxygen leash trails into her nose–a horse stands in snow
