Ditch Box

on a country curve
sniffed by my dog
in the ditch
snow slips down the edges
a box
stained and beaten

lid rises
sides fall apart
broken and soaked
wrapped tight n'taped
in plastic
safe from the damp

puck sinks slow and steady

smoothly down through the ice

in a circle of black heat

Under My Gloves

lights dim
zamboni doors shut
scoreboard reset
dressing room silence
heads bowed
salt sweat drips
under my gloves
