divided amongst the sweeping frozen dunes
now forced into shouldered amnesty

Street lights shiver in snowcapped bonnets

the thought of you soothe's down my throat.

in wastrel air
like breezeless fans.

the turkey has so much less heft

Fantasies float through the psyche
Replacing all thoughts of miscommunication
Infatuation and lustful Inspirations of a lesser form
Gurgle over closed eyes and slanted head
Leaning toward the floor
