Who Isn’t in Love with Itinerant Emotions?

I was some kind
Of a pale cloud

Pondering the value
Of absolute transparency

& you were a sidewalk
& so I snowed on you

It’s ok with me, you sd
Your head torn off

By the hurtling sounds—
Howls of the dogs!

The streets in their howling!
                        & all summer

We held nothing
Like a snow globe in our hands—

The idea of snow at our window
Like a book being shut

& like two figures
Overshadowed

By the meaning
Of a poem

We thought ourselves
Irrelevant, I guess

On one hand—
Propriety

On the other hand—
A blur!
