i am dumb with snow

 

i’m trying to be close

to you

until i can’t. until i can

extinguish sunlight.

 

i am naked on a mountain

i have two fists & am

my own birthstone.

 

i am caught between sound

& the ear.

 

i am dumb with snow

falling on the mountain.

it is so big the mountain

 

is so big & i am trying

to measure

my perceptions

 

with a blank palette

of invisible imaginary

made up colors.

 

there is a sadness in english.

the mountain rubs

 

up on the sky & the sky

becomes colder

the closer you come

 

to the sun.
