SUNNY DECEIT
(12/15/10)


the winter days
are filled
with lying rays
of promised
warmth
from the sun

they are
lightcicles
hanging in ridicule
from the gables
in the sky

frozen
impotencies
ready to be
broken
at the slightest
touch

brittle
and numbing
incapable
of melting
to display
even the
slightest bit
of sympathy

my head
bumps painfully
against
the sunshine
as I walk
to my
car

I look forward
to arriving
home
in the softer
cold truth
of darkness
