Soft and Thick and Everywhere

Soft and Thick and Everywhere

Soft soft soft as mittens and kittens and loose-knitted quilts
Thick thick thick as frosting and ice and books full of paper
Everywhere as everywhere, hills and fields and roads and trees
Snow like the end of the world, all disappeared in its suffocating folds
Snow like the beginning of the world, empty and void and waiting for a voice
Snow like listening for a sigh, for a shout, for a cry to swallow and consume
Snow like holding breath, quiet and deep and dark and white
Snow like weight holding down the world, soft, thick, everywhere
Snow like beauty, invisible until it overwhelms and there is nothing else
Snow and snow and snow, fallen on snow and fallen on snow
Soft and thick and soft and thick and soft and thick and everywhere
