POETRY: Two Positives Divided by Snow

Standing, we are vertical

Lying, we are not

Wanting our fates to be lovers


Like frying bacon

Unable to choose the direction the aroma moves,

Not always straight or bent—were we kept or kept out


Always yes or no or…

Here it is, another that

Slides easily in the oil…straight in

A third piece

And then a fourth


What is the logic of no socks

When tender skin is scuffed


New hopes, familiar roads

So many desires leading to us

Like two positives divided by snow

Into salmon and reindeer plus tacos
