winter comes as no surprise

try as i might
i can’t pull my reflection from this fly-specked mirror

a mirror gone dark
the dark of a very cold night

i walk under a clotted pewter sky
my shadow undulates upon rimy frozen waters

God protect me from that which i desire

nothing can protect me from my love for you
winter comes as no surprise
