the way the comets blaze
and the way the stars align
form patters in our eyes:
the subtle gleam of a telephone call
waiting in the snow,
sliding across the ice,
complements the wind tonight.

against my face December beats
as my thumping heart does
against my ribs—
your name in lights
underneath this diamond-platted sky
makes me want to sleep

in the snow.
