This Winter

There’s a list of things 

about this winter,

all that cracked open

this frozen shell 


Here, for example–

the cows on my morning commute.

sweet-faced and calm

no longer looking like dinner


Then there’s the news every day,

full of creatures less lucky than cows

When I can’t take in any more bad news

I listen to lectures on astrophysics.

A smart man talks with enthusiasm

about the nature of time and space

I drive through the comfort of

tiny particle physics

and let all the words I don’t understand

drift on a wave out the car window 

towards the cow barn.

Let ‘s see what they make of it
