snow-heavy sky
the weight of the world
on his shoulders
scarf slapping in the breeze
my snowman smiles at me

  the back roads
already drifted over with snow
I re-read my old journals
who was this girl
who knew so much, so little?

    if only you had left
taken your things
banged shut the door
instead of being there
not talking anymore

I finally forgave you
for not answering
those letters
that I wrote to you
and never sent

  notice of default …
I take a walk in the rain
just to see
the cherry blossoms
strewn along the path

    vacation detour –
a truckload of green tomatoes
spilled on the road
of being sun-ripened
