Winter left terrain so stiff
I dig into my fingertips
I sow my seeds into the wounds
Why haven't they bloomed?

the morning that you left
i woke up with a nosebleed
the radiator growled and
the streets were full of snow

looking out toward the highway
i heard the dawn expand
creeping fingers 'round the curtian
blocking out the morning glow

the motel where we lived
was overgrown with lichen
the floors a shifting plane
of slate and wild thyme

i felt your presence flee
felt your hands release my shoulders
as the morning stayed its course
along the highway centre line

the snow continued falling
increasing with the dawn
and inside our rented forest
i washed my face alone

i gathered on our bed
the remainder of your clothing
i set fire to your exhaustion
and i packed my car for home
