Vespers (46)

chastity concludes at home.
or thereabouts. winter
resolves itself,
one noun at a time.

I lived where there were drifts
again. the motor noticed
the ingredients of chore,
one at a time.

one ventured across roads
that seem impossible from distance
and in vivid past tense.
one fears resonance entirely.

one becomes a moon
in which the hopeful
notice their demise.
and make it never necessary again.
