Drawing: Pencil on Paper.
In White Gloves
Winter arrived on crutches--
and like the woman on the subway
who brushed my hand by accident,
simply could not bear to give herself over.
There was beauty in her pale face;
a tempered eagerness that clawed
its way down a tiny crack in my window
but already night had
cast it's black mist
into her wizened eyes
and death came quickly
-better to die in the arms
of an intimate stranger...
to have never tasted
the immensity of a snowflake.
