James Collier Literature Poetry

little winter

James Collier

cloud unsettling
little winter, in April
it is all local,
grappling with small stakes and
nothing real, Caeneus unknowable
to the body I feel,
glance down, glazed
and terrible it is
all so apathetic, the snow
smothers what is not
already home, and Caeneus,
I am sorry, but the crush is
killing me, too
