I think of the ax
Which is the conspiracy
for the tree.

All Snow Melts

In the new snow 
we held gloved hands
as we walked,
and wondered aloud, 
our words greying the air,
what our life together
should consist of next.

We walked the whole day,
a thousand ephemeral tomorrows
falling into our footprints,  
and it was only 
as we reached our newly furnished home
I realised you’d slipped your hand
from your glove
and were gone.

How long had I been talking to myself?
Why do I fear 
it was before you left me
with nothing 
but your glove?
