how snow falls

ow Snow Falls

Like the unshaven prickle
of a sharpened razor,

this new coldness in the air,
the pang

of something intangible.
Filling our eyes,

the sinusitis of perfume
without the perfume.

And then love's vertigo,
love's exactitude,

this snow, this transfiguration
we never quite get over.

  1. I want this snow. It's too damn hot here.
