SPRING BLIZZARD, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: A limb's sententious crack
Last Line: I wish you wouldn't look at me that way
Subject(s): Snow; Spring

A limb's sententious crack
Is its apology for breaking.

Far enough is far enough for once.

When we mention the world,
We mean our fate before we know it.

I broke as you were mentioning the world.

This is how the moon feels
Whose orbit snaps in apogee.

I wish you wouldn't look at me that way.
