oh I see you, brown cat
in a winter field

the taste of my sixth year
is fresh straw strewn over a sidewalk,
honeysuckle wrapped around a fence

twenty-four is warm sea air on my skin

today is a mixed-up winter
with mice-in-hiding

I think if I make it,
seventy-four will smell
like woodsmoke over the lake
