the unimaginable torque

it takes to fracture the bone

only imaginable

when the calf of the creature

one sees as alpha

once round and tomato-

shaped, but solid as rock,

spirals and splits

with one unknowing step

across the fractured ice

over the fractured concrete

...walk it out...

walk it out

the door then

step it onto the street

then swift step down

the block while whistling

past neighbors

a nod or smile

while fiddling

with ears and eyes

and traversing

the melting piles

this will become your habit

we will become this ritual

intrusion in return

drop in pressure/


barometric impetuousness/

the false start of spring

a hidden shadow

was already predicted

fooled we were again

pig in mud frozen

back in tempered time

lessened with each

wandering week


tempter seeks revenge

cold winded night

when shadows

are shades of grey

darker than seasons

that spawn cold cracked


(it soon changes

into spring)

(if not we stay thawless)

...parallel parking...

the spot in

which you park

is parallel

to the spot

within my heart

(for Steff)
