It Took Forever to Get Here
And here is where the ground is soaked
with a new kind of estrangement.
Maybe it was foolish to resist
the air's living ear—
obtaining a slice of its aura is a privilege
limited to those "in the know."
Those in the snow just ignore it, focus instead
on their lines of credit.
We do like a bit of cuteness, so long as it
doesn't abscond with our language too literally.
Great balls of silence! Check out the abs on that soda.
