Relapse

Nothing else but the spaces

where snow will not rest.

And grass is hibernating-waiting

beneath the curve of Winter’s breast.

Amid all this yellow and pink

he will ride his bicycle so fast,

shoot heroin, go to prison

and cry at the death of my father

before it happens.

Don’t relapse.
