study in white

duck into the hole
crawl down the winding
luminous tunnel
polished by other crawlers

here is a silent world
that does not exist in summer
a child-devised warren
in a mound in plain sight

here a niche
where Jackie stowed his snowballs
for a rainy day
he laughed

here a twisting sub-tunnel
down into dark
Donald’s basement
pass quickly

emerge finally onto
sunlight
the dazzling battlements
ready to defy all
