Poem transcribed here as text:
Ghazal of Snow
Again the desert is blanketed, secreted by snow / with its light landings, blamed for nothing, lightness of snow
how can the world be both gray and blinding white / oh what a perfect day to be inside, surrounded by snow
I tilt my head back and look up out the window, like when / I was a boy in Ohio home from school, watching small specs of snow
For a while they were huge, an inch / or two big at the least. With their girth swells, too, my excitement at the snow
They descend from the heavens /
grant the world life anew, covered in snow.

In the dead of night
behind a window, watching for a friend.
My cat’s hot date.
Blue on top, then
yellow and red in the center,
darkness on bottom.
The War Poets were
at times rods of iron, at times
soft teddy bears
I’ve started this game
with so many characters.
Who even am I?
A pen of mine died.
It was used to the last drop.
What a life.

Gears turn and wheels fly over dry.
They take us to our family.
We stayed there a spell to re-heal
this allowed us to reveal
a bond of family that’s real,
though they play cards very wildly.
This is also a Welsh form like last Friday’s, this time called the Clogyrnach.

Red body floating
through our atmosphere, silent.
Elon Musk’s Tesla.
