amid a crowd of stars

… and trying to stay awake

Snow and Fire

without comments

Breathing on embers

I wait,

hurriedly,

bringing fire to life.

Snow accumulates on the ledge.

Flakes move with the wind

in haloes of lamplight.

Trying not to look too far into things —

the shape by the fire, resolves

into a dog

and a literary cat

asleep on a book.
