Blazing January Snows

© 1981 Candice James Poet Laureate Emerita,
City of New Westminster, BC

I lay
On the black nights
Of an unwanted summer,
Alone,
Keeping vigil
Over a creeping damp.

I feed
On second hand dreams,
Smoky feelings,
Wasted ashes,
And silent smoldering suns.

I am searching
For ice cubes
In the middle of summer.

When the season has passed,
I will seek out flames
In the blazing January snows.
