This bone deep chill,
Standing before you in the shade of this majestic pine
Crouching behind the taste of port or the flashes of cerulean and topaz blue
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
paper shining white like the pocked moon.
The north field was frozen, just a broad stretch of white, it grew thicker with every flake.
We have nowhere to go, nowhere to hide but the shadows. When the snow
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets.
