The Walker



The snow gave way under my feet- whump, whump, whump

sometimes it cracked liked brittle bone but then it went back to

whump, whump, whump

I walked carefully, for fear I’d slip like last time

and that I would slide

like the last time

down the side of the hill into the arms of the jagged black rocks below

whump, whump, whump

crack, crack, crack

so I walk carefully you understand

on the side of the road

covered with snow


it is always covered with snow

for me.
