She said it was just a poem

Winter came early…
Its heavy coat
Sealing in the cold
Its view not the same

Touching your neck
Reclaiming your soul
The winter wind
Pushes and shoves

No matter what the weather.

like Heaven and Earth,
could only be universally transcendent
If also unitarian immanent

Admit One Categories: staring, animal, cat, fear, Form: Free verse
He stares at the scene on the wall,
obscene shadows projecting private Revelation.
Bony fingers giving emphatic
He turns to the window to see the glowing eyes

Looking for the quickest way to a bowl of something.
