ELLEN CREGAN #2: January

on buses shuttling

through green hills

 

I got my frost

and bloomed

 

my skin did not peel

merely suffered

 

the ephemeral pinking

that comes with north wind

 

I wait for my shoulders

to become dusted

 

as I wonder at

medieval manors.

 

victoriana is a comfort

it’s leveled foundations and

 

symmetrical spaces

remind me of home

 

for now, I stare at clouds and

wait for the weather’s change.
