newly in love — so many things I refrain from mentioning
inside an envelope inside an envelope funeral money
missing you an exposed film
rain all day — lying here, my breath someone else’s
making love in silence — forever strangers to ourselves
snow man’s vows

    old chair
    car lights flick past in a distance dark descent
    shutting a blind
    a pretense of light makeshifts to day
