Approaching VD
[February 12, 2009]

We are within days
Of Valentine’s Day
VD, an abbreviation
Infrequently used
By the prudish amongst us.

A banshee blow sends outdoor
Furniture aloft
Anything not nailed down
& secured doomed to travel,
at least to the next fence.

The dog sighs loudly, glad
to be genetically
Downstream of wolfdom where
he would be sleeping outdside
In ill-ean-tempered wind.

3 A.M., I am
enlivened by the roar,
sit scratching on yellow dog
With ballpoint and quyll
Hoping the flow outlasts the storm.

Two days ago, 64
Tonight snow.
Normal has returned,
Fishing far off in
An ill-defined future.
