the upward march
of grassland
  autumn —
bones of an old man ...
blend in
before snow
how silent the birds —
sparrow tongue tea
  cold day at the beach
a man casts his line
    only twice
a museum of moons shadows on the stone  
in a tide pool
February park.
A line of ice on each twig.
Gulls carry the sea.
  february sun —
a can nods through
the water's reflections
I'm left with my lips.
The winter didn't touch
My breath.
