melting ice
soft sounds of shifting
we try again to forgive


January 17, 2018

first bird of the day
singing me from my dream
into morning


January 16, 2018

behind my teeth
the questions I’m not allowed
thicket with thorns


January 15, 2018

lingering pine scent
where the tree stood

Martin Luther King Day


January 14, 2018

second snow day
we add laundry to the list
of work to ignore


January 13, 2018

you sing to yourself
notes finding our floorboard cracks
rise to reach me


January 12, 2018

the end of school break
we stand around trading 
stories and germs
