and new year
when you don’t know what day it is,
who you are,
or what you are supposed to be doing.

“Hint of spring showing up in upcoming weather pattern”
above is quote from our online paper
at this point in the year
i was really hoping for something more than just a hint.
seems like a burlesque version of a weather forecast to me
all optimistic style and not much substance.
after giving examples and explaining their reasons,
the article wrapped up with:
“This isn’t a permanent pattern change to feeling like spring. After the weekend we have temperatures dropping back to feeling like winter. If you add 10 to 20 degrees on, it won’t be too cold. It might remind you of spring. Time is on your side if you need spring. Just keep hanging in there.”
“one can never produce anything as terrible and impressive
as one can awesomely hint about.”

“Frost grows on the window glass,
forming whorl patterns of lovely translucent geometry.
Breathe on the glass, and you give frost more ammunition.
Now it can build castles and cities and whole ice continents with your breath’s vapor.
In a few blinks you can almost see the winter fairies moving in . . .
But first, you hear the crackle of their wings.”

“music brings a warm glow to my vision,
thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.”
