lyrics

INTO THE MARROW

Isn’t it evident that you are all I hold close?
With windows open I can hear
the death knell from a neighboring chapel.

In a drawer I keep
a woolen mouse-nest.
Beyond the beveled panes of windows
I keep snow.

I stay up all night to hear
the hungry owl, a lonesome
coyote’s howl, the voice of a love
I don’t know anymore.

A kiss as startling
and presaging as a bird
against the windshield.

The blizzard took your foot steps
before morning with a rehearsed sigh
for the new year,
like a cancer already into the marrow.
