I wish I could do short poetry. Yours is always a capture, rather than a description. It's like you look at everything and say "stop for a minute," and then caption it with your poem.
It's food for the imagination. I like the picture of this one, your footnotes to it, and what it prompts me to think in response. You can't exactly go, without knowing not a thing. Otherwise, you would derive nothing from it.
I haven't been to church in years.
It's amazing the effect ice can have on the world.
