Bobcat: The restlessness of the spirit!
Stripe-tailed Raccoon: A desire to root!
Sonnet to Someone Else’s Old Love Letter
Unfaithfulness hit the page in several
places, making several vowels blur, making
Philly beautiful in snow, a city
trying to show that it could. The letter
takes a long walk. Some doubt, a smiley face.
My brain starts slowly to believe…
1999, I know you’re trying.
A man cheats on his wife and everyone
argues abstract nouns, sealing out the wind.
Footprints marring the snow, but all of it
soon melted: it’s OK if you didn’t
have time to say it. So little does last.
Good luck with the work, Love. I found that book
and mailed it, should arrive by Saturday.
