TONIGHT IS A DOCTOR WHO NIGHT AND I’LL HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY.
So this is winter—-
and what remains of the world
now that autumn has left us,
gone underground with the
once luminous grasses and the husks
and seeds of all the left-behinds.
This is the cold season.
Learn to endure it.
Winter teaches us to love the long
liturgies of ice, the sudden stopping of water
before the black flock of birds
lifts blindly off the pond.
I’ve got a family that really is a family, three best friends who I’m never letting go of, and a girlfriend who gives me butterflies every time I think about her. On top of that, I’m content with where I am and where I am going in this life. I don’t have everything, but I have what counts.
