Kept From The Cold

named after a place in time
i’m somewhere

i’m with you
i can’t see you

i wrote this to you by hand
i filled my bedroom up with water
the outside of my window packed tight with snow

i wear it in my handwriting

i keep a beautiful dead moth atop a box of puzzles

the holes in the cat’s eyes shrink
as she looks out the window to the bright white snow
and a sky i later look blue under
and it appears as it did when i forgot to write it down

then i thought i saw the cat’s yellow eyes
waiting outside the window
and i stopped in my tracks
but it was the golden doorknob reflecting in the glass
before i knew it
i was tearing away at a canvas on it’s way to the trash
