"White the October air, no snow, easy to breathe
beneath the sky, lies, lies everywhere writhing and
gasping clutching and tangling, it is not easy to breathe
lies building their tendrils into dim figures
who disappear down corridors in west-side apartments
into childhood’s proof of being wanted, not
betrayal staving off loneliness, I see the fog lunge in
and hide it
where are you?"
