Suddenly Buoyed

Suddenly with the tactile brightness
from the intrusive, unwieldy snow,
the days are longer.
They have been for weeks,
but my soul is unusually buoyed today.

Dramatic weakness,
my soul being waved around
by the length of the day
like a terrible doll
from my dog’s clenched fangs.

The snow has its days
I need help to make my days.
Darkness should not swim so long
in my tiny green pond with dead fish.

    love, love “Darkness should not swim for so long…”

    for a prelude-
    to-an-afternoon-
    nap, darkness
    should not
    swim for so
    long. there
    is nothing
    that quite
    primes stillness
    as Ira, who lifts
    words into
    kaleidoscopic
    flags, with no need
    for anchors
    to secure them
    .
