this is what goes on the last page


we fall, as the year
into december, so
wetly longed-for.

the rush
that calls our quiet
is the absence

of sirens.
the rails we walked
for so long

now blink
into forever,
a smoke-curl

on january’s horizon.
your left hook
is useless

against the coming
that kind

of hardness
can only melt
or burn.

  1. “a smoke-curl / on january’s horizon” – now that’s how to describe forever. I could feel the cold here — sending you warm from California – spread it all over. Good poem, too.- Love, Mosk

  2. -The sword I lifted was the right word from the right part of this dream….Where there were answers that survived deep underground in purest water.

    -and there’s always water somewhere.

    One can always find a river flowing south deep in the earth to fill a well, if one keeps digging.
