coup de grâce

NovNYC2013

winter’s sun
continues to run
weakening minute
by minute, overtaken
by myriad light eaters
on heels
~
Seasonal birds
of prey ferociously
cracking benevolent egg
yolk sun’s shell to pieces
leaking its warmth as crows
cherry picking shiny pieces
~
blustery gale force
winds offer neither leeway
nor breathers, bloodthirstily
joining forces bludgeon cornered
sun shattering in single fell
swoop coup de grâce
~
shivering
cuddling
palms cupping
hot beverages
we pray for return
of our lion maned sun
~
