Icer of Air, Harnesser of Wish

… across the feinting blizzard airplane night, you are brake lights reflected in snow …

Trees, your winter spindle-arms, sleeping beauties of the morning sky
lover-wind, your constant state of leaving commotion
moon-bastard, reflection the color of early snow
winter, big-footed dinosaur dancer across Northern Illinois
freezer of short days and absent leaves

Break ’em off some, bury the ecclesiastical endeavors and
pandemonium of autumn
wicked wind warrior wendigo, you are supersonic, icer of air
across the feinting blizzard airplane night,
you are brake lights reflected in snow
powdered howls, you come across as street
freezer of water, floater through the sky
sharpening tassels of sky, shortened day

Radiator water borrows scrupulously the night,
white-butter frosting, scapulas of snow
breasts of movement in the wind, maverick lickings of God’s tongue
tremendous wastrels, fey and puckish, take on the night and shine
Claus, Santa of my dreams, keeper of the goddamn red and white bag
poker of Rudolph, harnesser of wish
