Ice

Late 1990’s news
and music played
when the tree smashed
into us,

sending sparkling bits
of glass like a scattering
of stars,
a eruption of fear
then cold waiting
for the matter to be
settled and filed.


Sofa Tunnel

As a child, I found tunnels
where I wanted to,
crawling into secret places

sitting beneath the brass
and glass table in the corner,
enjoying my hiding spot

I still tuck myself away
but the locations
are not as obvious now.
