a north-easterly flow of warm humid air over the ice in the river valley
will bring unseasonably dense foggy conditions for most of today

island trees
dark splayed fingers extended through the soft still white
dream of winter

the only reality is the dark strip of asphalt
the cottages, houses hanging at the edges of the uncertain dense white
that brings clouds down
but not clouds exactly
more like quantum uncertainty
bestowed on the macroverse
our little cosmos


Some white angora sweater has taken over the river
filled the river to its banks and beyond


someone smudged chalk over a painting of the  river
and the river liked it
as a fashion statement

The voice of the poet
