12.08, New England (from The New Ark Journals)

It gets to you/

this season brings
  such —

simply strange when

amass hope so

know how they go

hopes or feelings

against the frost

we recharge hope

still scour the snow

signs never there

the snow never

but hope’s snow can

there or here if

want some rejoice

cover up our

or our snow don’t

cover our snow
