Our weather is highly variable to begin with, but this is crazy! 60* – 15-20* above average for November. My old truck is not equipped for winter. This warm spell means I can keep on driving…


In anticipation of the inevitable:

Dog Talk

My fingers reach to close the splitting sky

as cries fade from a retreating slice of vapor.

A scraped and frozen hand returns

to where my breath can save it.

A howling bitch is a distant voice

that threads the night together.

I call to the dog. She will not come.

Winter is chasing the dog.
