TILL HUMAN VOICES WAKE US AND...

old house
the snow
climbs the stairs

asleep
on a rusted bed
snow

the snow
looks out the window
at itself falling

the snow
has the house
to itself

the snow
startled out of its sleep
by a human intent on remembering

the snow
more at ease inside
than the human

the human
tears in its eyes
the snow smiles

snow now
both
inside/outside



human footsteps


the snow


covers them up
