pull on thick wool socks
flecked with wood dust
heel kick 'em in deep
work the laces up
doubled knotted good
canal skates
cinched Gordie Howe tight

the quilt

bit of draft
  down here
on this hard wood floor

spread it out
 full and thick
rich in warm colours
 roll around, play
with scattered toys

a cancer blanket
 no more

the plow

snow whipped
blown up
into cold white dunes

blade sparks fly
in frenzied drifts 

rumble plowing
all through
the deep night
