Cold

thick and thicker
swamps the air with bogeymen.
Dust sparrows
hide within the long-leafed grasses
bundled and bundled.
Sunlight
drenches the windows
drowning the sky with light and storm,
but there is no storm
only cold
blue and bluer.

Michael H. Brownstein’s book, A Slipknot Into Somewhere Else: A Poet’s Journey To The Borderlands Of Dementia, was recently published by Cholla Needles Books (2018).
