Birthweight 

Last Updated: 01/05/2015 11:41 am

Spring comes without a grudge

against winter. Each casual daffodil

just shows up. Outside our stories.


Once I held my son in my hands.

About the weight of our old cat.

His gaze and mine: peers

at a birth in a hospital.


From the unseen, something

just shows up. An old weight

of feeling unseen? or something

that is light. That is, light.


Fall promises nothing. Coolness.

A hollowing of space into distances.

The blazing amid the conifers fades.

To stand there, clearly visible


as the stories go out of season.
