Issue 4 - Margaret Walther

A Slight, Often Barely Perceptible Augmentation

cold comes in increments
bass violin drop, drift of the sun

winter opens its purse
where did we put last year’s gloves

we become shutters, shudder
into ourselves, something added or gained

grass steps into sackcloth
leaves kaddish at our feet

when we breathe, doors open and close
a small negative or positive change

snow clambers onto the screen
high notes on the ice piano clink white

geese solder a V into metallic grey night
opens its ghazal of stars 

on the couch your shoulder leans into mine
our fund accumulates in the hourglass

--Margaret Walther
