December 24*

some days it is                dull grey      leaden purple      ashen umber
murky struggled light daubed drab
cold and deathly wet to touch

some days it is                silver      platinum      lilac/violet
etched in fine thin light, shimmering
bleeding the exact perfect nature

of winter
