snow says goodbye to me

I am silent

I melt with

the snow

neighborhood crying

hand of anger

anger of the heart

weeping cities

look over the heads of the war birds fly

This poem smells blue

The color of wrinkles in the sky

Black shapes in clear water

This verse will be picked up by crows in the morning

And they will be thrown from heaven

On icy concrete heart rocks


All in vain
