penny in a castle

A digital chapbook.

These grey days of winter

Of stunted dull cold

And endless clouds

Like the dusty feathered back

Of a city pigeon

Flatten me out

Like a bit of newsprint

Caught and frozen in dirty layers

Of grit and snow.


Give me Nature’s overwhelming whiteness

Of a snow storm’s drift

Or the cutting crystalline edge

Of a cold sun dog day

Over the dregs and depths

Of a mid-February evening

Any time.
