and to think, not yet fifty
fortunate i am

that winter rhythm
dim mornings and darker nights
beneath a warm duvet

with grim forebearance
spin through the intersection
this season of joy

reading and dreaming

and if you must buy something
be aware of it

advance in the east
seconds pass and seasons too
in the west retreat

the grind of my halt
technical glitches ensnare
i don't mean to whine

flash ostentatious
circumspect a baited trap
malevolence masked

browsing hoof shuffle
here above the battlefords
back where you belong

[i have no photo
subject seen at one ten k
so this one will do]

healthy buffalo
now penned, your people nearby
a hundred years late

[remember that day
school burning, no greater fear
not a child was lost]

[so fortunate we]
and less fortunate are those
upon whose land we're on

tumble over me
as i rumble through this room
raven of the fog
