"a mixed bag of weather coming up"

blast of a bus • slush on the roadway steady
                 swishing swishing by

your eyelashes' curve a ski-jump, a saturn ring

boomerang "an original work of art" $16.95 snug in
                 the fist in the store of knowledge

your eyelashes' black a panther's blink, obsidian
                 the sliver, undersea ink

time to go cook now merry christmas i'm
                 cokie roberts • zydeco music call toll-free

your eyelashes' length a glimpse of palisade of
                 beauty deep pools to gaze

chit chit chit invisible cardinals in wet dripping
                 xmas eve trees your elsewhere

your elsewhere eyelashes a tangle of icicles
                 longing violations expensive afar yet
                 aglow viennese wish flitter enticements
                 corkscrewbrush thrilling gladtidings jet
                 smokeshield doubletake loveliness
