JANUARY, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Again I reply to the triple winds
Last Line: Its derisive music.
Subject(s): January

Again I reply to the triple winds
running chromatic fifths of derision
outside my window:
Play louder.
You will not succeed. I am
bound more to my sentences
the more you batter at me
to follow you.
And the wind,
as before, fingers perfectly
its derisive music.
