she walks from the store
snow falls near La Tour Eiffel
cold baguettes tonight
—after photograph by Varsovianna
(Instagram, 19 Jan 2021: trois baguettes, s’il vous
tied around stately trees
ready to open up
the view of the new lake
thoughts and prayers
do not wrap like blankets
a frigid night

I check all the locks
broken smoke alarm
chirps on the ceiling all night...
counting only breath
this tulip sings
at the edge of silence
