winter(fracturable)

The Wattle Room

Winter's Still Life

Yellow and red leaves gaze upon the

expected taciturn season

The stubborn denseness of winter is near

Obeying buttressed thoughts

of the beginning and the end

 

Unemployed plastic door

Masked armour of fakery

 

Her tin eyelids are closing now

Cold metal words

Suspended                                in the depths

      of the black dam

 

              Circling resolve is caught in the

 

                                                                                   clank
