Monday, December 10

Mid Ohio (pt. II)

It is Our Year.
I could see it from afar, from the sidewalk
in winter, lined with yellow berries and bare forsythia,
ice creeping up the driveway, the big
sky stretched over blue mailboxes--

It is ours. Fate happens automatically, a clockwork
precision, the colors get bolder. Especially the golds.
Flashing utility lights, caution tape, streetlamps' halos
spreading out though December mists. Headlights
in a parade, solemn, humming, carrying double-lanterns East.
