poetry

How the intolerable
becomes tolerable, against 

all attestations otherwise
the bite, forgotten

that old dispensation
what a strange capacity

a heart deadens
itself, dryly, inexorable

as a nature show
prey, predator, or

merely winter
coming on, nothing

is surprising
now, not even

this
