Winter Summer

Bright outside the window
As seen from climate-control

Probably warm, probably humid

Nobody’s going out, again

The smell of old woodsmoke from the fireplace
I’m opening the blinds onto the neighbor’s yard

The azaleas past their prime,
The pachysandra vs. the weeds and the poison ivy

Generations of deer and foxes
An errant box turtle of some sort

The ghost of former elms and everything else that’s left

Nobody’s leaving, again
