THE TWINS
(1/9/19)


they
wait for me
each
clear morning

Castor

Pollux

hanging
in the western
sky

just
to the right
of my
garage

over
the neighbor's
back yard

reminding
me
that winter
is still
with us

even
on these
moderate
mornings

when the
temperatures
seem more
like spring

today
is the milder
face
of January

but we know
that the other
uncaring
icy gaze
will return

all too
soon
