ethno totems

to sky conspire

landscape doors and views

memory an artifact

to a city bar,

snowprints on sidewalk

snowscape lean and pale

collect and exist

what love brings tangible

native ambiance

settled and answered

bring your dances

and embraces

bleak satirical cold

twisted with lime in gin

amid saxophones and guitars

as red flamed resonance,

word labels on her cheeks

written and said

walk out of the snow

into the light

sins well washed with winter rain

glass bowl sun

will rise with the headlines

that make no sense,

the night as always

long with relief,

closing eyes

alaska seemed much closer

  1. I like the imagery here … footprints in the snow, she walks out … Alaska seems much closer. A moody piece, intriguing 🙂

  2. It may look closer ~ Liking this part:

    amid saxophones and guitars

    as red flamed resonance,
