As winter hazes of January spraying
While I was meditating on how

White untrodden snows

Nature's frozen pulse

Sleep like a little baby

One gracious moon

Enough!
by Michael R. Burch

It’s not that I don’t want to die;
I shall be glad to go.
Enough of diabetes pie,
and eating sickly crow!
Enough of win and place and show.

These did not always feed my multicultural self/other liberation of the GLBTQ subclimatic root system

so sweet like cured Valencia Oranges
