"Snow is a landscape of loneliness. // It returns to Earth if only to be touched a little longer."
"I’m going to fail simply by standing in front of you, / waving my arms in your face as if hailing a taxi: / I’m here, I’m here
"I want to live longer. / I want to love you longer, say it again, / I want to love you longer / & sing that song / again."
"There is nothing / you won’t put on. You put on the darkness. / You put on some stars and even what / is between them. You put on the moon."
"To love like God can love, sometimes. / Before the kettle boils to a whistle, quiet."
"When you / get a group of heartbeats together you get names that call out / into the evening’s first radiance of planets"
