no rest for the moon

winter weather advisory has taken
over the town
and now the wind blown streets
cover again
waiting to be cleared
of last nights debris.

winter weather advisory has taken
over the house
and the windows are leaking
cold air
into the bedroom, causing sniffles
in the morning and enemy
sheets waiting to warm.

winter weather advisory has taken
over the body
and juicy flesh toes are shriveling,
poking through
soaked old wool socks,
curling and uncurling
welcoming blood flow, carrying
heat to another spring.
