Life With Horace

poetry & essays



ejected from
safe flannel warmth
by bossy time’s
insistent beat,
I patter early
as the world
outside the kitchen glass
grows light,
and see two cousins
on each side,
one bathed in light.
kept safe,
the other riding out
a winter storm,
its spare brown stalks
both memory and promise
of reunion.
