This flatness, this frozen ground, this sky
devoid of clouds. The long stretch of empty

pews and bar tops, their quiet. One-stop-light
town, consolidated school, drought-dried

river. Desert. Mountain. Sea. See,
we are not alone in our sorrow.

Even the trees meet December
by tearing their garments,

snow falling like ash on our hair.
